We discuss relations among properties of systems that consist of any amounts of constituents (including one particle), that have volume as the only parameter, and that are in thermodynamic equilibrium or stable equilibrium states. For large amounts of constituents, we introduce the concept of a simple system, and derive additional relations among properties.
