Physical Changes & Properties
By: Emily Han & Hannah Yao
What is a physical change?
Remember that the size, shape, and phase of matter (solid, liquid, gas) changes.
EXAMPLES: Crushing a can, melting an ice cube, boiling water, mixing sand and water, breaking glass, shredding paper, etc.
This is a physical change because it is the same sheet of paper, but in different states, ripped or crumbled.
What is a physical property?
Examples: Volume, temperature, length, melting point, color, shape, density, appearance, texture, odor, etc.
