Within physical science and engineering, an Isolated system is a physical system that is so far removed from other systems that it is considered almost closed off from them. This differs from a closed system, in which the latter are isolated through an artificial boundary, while the former is due to causal distance. Isolated systems are useful for dealing with real world phenomena such as atoms and planets in the solar system.
