What is a Physical Property?
The next time you smell a plant of some sort and think that it smells like someone tried to burn their used gym socks, just remember that it can't help the way it was created by Mother Nature and can't help it. It's all because it was made with that physical property.
What is a Chemical Property?
Have you ever looked at a tissue or a piece of paper and thought, "Hm... I wonder which one would burn more quickly if I lit both of them on fire?" ...No? Well, hopefully our previous explanation helped explain this so we don't sound like pyromaniacs that think about burning stuff all the time. Both substance's flammability is an example of a chemical property.
