Physical Vs. Chemical Change


Physical Change

… it occurs when something is added with another and it changes in a way one of the 5 Senses can notice.

Some examples being change in smell, taste, or texture. This is because they react with the 5 Senses: the abilities to smell, taste, touch, hear, and see.

Chemical Change

… it occurs when an element reacts to another and it changes chemical properties.

Some examples being change in flammability, precipitate, rust, endothermic additions of heat, exothermic bursts of flame, and its reaction to water. This is because they react in such a way that it's chemical properties change to a different set of chemical properties altogether. Physical change usually happens in a chemical change, like how it feels, looks, tastes, and smells.
