The Difference Between Physical and Chemical Properties of Matter.
How to Tell the Difference Between Chemical & Physical Changes
Physical property is an aspect of matter that can be observed or measured without changing its chemical composition. Examples of physical properties include color, molecular weight and volume. A chemical property may only be observed by changing the chemical identity of a substance. Examples of a chemical change color change, formation of aprecipitate, formation of a gas, odor change, temperature change
What is a Physical Property???
A physical property is any property that is measurable, whose value describes a state of a physical system. The changes in the physical properties of a system can be used to describe its changes between momentary states. Some common physical properties are odor, density, melting point and boiling point
What Are Physical Changes???
Physical changes are changes affecting the form of a chemical substance, but not its chemical composition. Examples of Physical changes: Ice melting involves a change from a solid to a liquid and the substances maintain the properties of water because the molecules never change. Water boiling is a physical change as water molecules vibrate faster, they enter the gas phase and become water vapor.
What Are Chemical Changes???
Usually irreversible chemical reaction involving the rearrangement of the atoms of one or more substances and a change in their chemical properties or composition, resulting in the formation of at least one new substance.Some signs of a chemical change are a change in color and the formation of bubbles. The five conditions of chemical change: color change, formation of a precipitate, formation of a gas, odor change, temperature change.
What is a Chemical Property???
A chemical property is any of a material's properties that becomes evident during, or after, a chemical reaction; that is, any quality that can be established only by changing a substance's chemical identity. Some common chemical properties are heat of combustion, toxicity, and flammability, each of which will be covered in this lesson.
Easy Way to Remember the Difference Between Chemical & Physical Changes
A physical change in a substance doesn't change what the substance is.
In a chemical change where there is a chemical reaction, a new substance is formed and energy is either given off or absorbed.
