Physical/chemical properties/change

Physical properties

A physical property is a characteristic of a substance that can be observed without changing the substance into something else.


3 examples of physical property: Hardness, Texture, and Color

1 non-example that somebody could get misplaced with this topic is rusting because somebody might think that it is still the same thing that is rusting.

A good video that helps with this:

What helps to see that this is a physical property is: volume

Physical changes

A physical change is a change that alters the form or appearance of a substance but does not make the material into another substance.


3 examples of physical change: folding paper, molding clay, and cutting sausage.

1 non-example: cutting finger

What helps me see that this is a physical change is: folded paper

Chemical properties

A chemical property is a characteristic that is observed when a substance interacts with another substance.


3 examples of chemical property: burn, rust, tarnish

1 non-example: Oder

What helps me see that this is a chemical property is: burn

Chemical changes

A chemical change is a change in matter that produces new substances.

3 examples of chemical change: burning wood, nail rusting, metal tarnishing

1 non-examples: cutting paper into tiny pieces
