Explanation of Open, Closed and Isolated Systems:

The detailed explanation of Open system closed system and isolated systems with examples was presented below.

1.Open System:

It is a system in which both mass interaction as well as energy interaction takes place.

Ex: Water flowing in a pipeline line.{Mass and K.E of water}

2.Closed System:

It is a system in which there is only energy interaction takes place but not mass interaction.


3.Isolated Systems:

It is a system in which neither mass interaction nor energy interaction takes place.

Ex: Coffee in a thermos flask.

Identify to which category,the following system belongs to:

1.A fountain pen while writing                                Open system.

2.Candle flame while burning                                 Open system

3. A TV switched ON                                                  Closed System

4.A transformer while working                               Closed System

5.Biogas Digestor                                                     Open System

6. The moon revolves around the earth                        Closed System

7.Air Conditioned Railway Coach                            Open System
