The previous chapters have shown, that it is essential to distinguish between state and process values. State values specify the state of a thermodynamic system. Furthermore, they can be visualised in a p, v-diagram for instance. The state of an ideal gas is fixed by two independent state values, so that each p, v-pair in a p, v-diagram defines the state of a system unambiguously.
