What Is a Physical and Chemical Changes?

Answer

A physical change is a change that is in the form of matter but not in its identity, for instance dissolving one thing to another like sugar into water or ice melting in water. A chemical change is a change where one kind of matter is changed to a different type of matter, for instance, the rusting of a car, digesting food and consuming magnesium metal in oxygen to form magnesium oxide.
