What are the path function in thermodynamics ?

 Path function:

The thermodynamic Functions which depend on the path means how the process is carried out to reach a state from another  state depends on path e.g. work & heat.

State function: Pressure, volume, temperature, Gibbs's free energy, internal energy,     entropy
Path function: Work, Heat, Loss of energy due to friction

Note : S, U, H, V, T etc are state function but ∆S, ∆U, ∆H, ∆V, ∆T, etc.are not state function. Infact ∆ terms are not function itself and it is very misleading and frequently asked in the exams.
