(ice melts to liquid-liquid boils to steam)

Chemical Property

Any characteristic that gives a substance the ability to undergo a change that results in a new substance.Examples:1. Flammability (ability to burn)2. Reacts with oxygen (ability to rust)3. Reacts with light (pictures being developed)4. Reacts with water (medicine dissolving in water)

Chemical Change

Any change in the identity of a substance due to the chemical properties of that substance (You have a new substance) (NOT revisable)


1. Flammability (fire burning to ash)

2. Reacts with oxygen (fruit rotting)

3. Heat and light (vitamins can change exposed to light)

4. Electricity (water can be broken down with electricity)
