What are some examples of physical properties?

Answer

Physical properties include observable characteristics like smell, color, boiling point, density, texture and opacity. The definition of a physical property is limited to those characteristics that can be observed without changing the chemical structure of an element, such as applying cold temperatures to a liquid to determine the point at which it freezes.

Water has physical properties that include a slippery texture, a nearly transparent level of opacity, a lack of hardness, a lack of distinct smells and a typically bluish or clear color. These physical properties of water can be observed without using any special tools or adding any additional chemicals.
