Chemical change

A chang in the identity of a that substance due to the chemical properties of that substance.(you have a new substance)(is it reversible? no).Examples:

  • Flammability(fire burning to ash)
  • Reacts with oxygen (fruit rotting)
  • Heat and light(vitamins can change when exposed to light
  • Electricity(water can be broken down with electicity).
