Matter can undergo physical and chemical changes. When a physical change occurs, a substance changes without altering its composition. When a chemical change occurs, a substance has chemically reacted to form one or more different substances.

Some examples of a physical changes are breaking something, crushing something, and freezing something. Some examples of chemical changes are baking, burning something, and fireworks exploding. The Law of Conservation of Matter is when a substance changes chemically or physically the total mass of the substance or substances stays the same because matter can neither be created or destroyed by physical or chemical changes.

3 physical changes are someone stepping on a can and crushing it.tearing a sheet of paper,popping a balloon is another physical change three chemical changes: fireworks exploding ,water turning into ice,and a tree catching on fire and being reduced to ash.When a substance goes through a chemical or physical change, the total mass of the substance or substances stays the same. because the mass cannot be destroyed by chemical or physical changes.

3 examples of physical changes are liquid freezing into solid,
shredding a piece of paper,and
pounding a metal, such as aluminum, into thin sheets.3 examples of chemical changes are;a penny being cleaned,a tree burning,and melting a pencil.According to the law of conservation of matter, matter is neither created nor destroyed. The mass of a substance will remain constant whether it is whole, separated into pieces, or in a different state. If a substance undergoes a chemical change, the masses of the products will equal the masses of the original reactants.

Physical Change
When a physical change occurs, a substance changes its appearance but not its identity or chemical composition.

Chemical Changes
A chemical change occurs when a substance changes its identity because its particles have been rearranged.

(Chemical change 1.) (Physical change 1.)
Decomposition liquid freezing into solid
(Chemical change 2.) (Physical change 2.)
When iron rust shredding a piece of paper
(Chemical change 3.) (Physical change 3,)
Tarnishing pounding metal

Conservation of Matter
When a substance goes through a chemical or physical change, the total mass of the substance or substances stays the same. This is because matter can neither be created nor destroyed by physical or chemical changes.

(Example)
If 50 grams of pure ice melts into liquid water, the form of the water changes into a liquid, but the amount of matter is the same.

physical changes is smashing a pop can, changing a background, snapping a pencil.
chemical changes is popping popcorn, growing a flower, washing a penny.
Law of Conservation of matter, matter is neither created nor destroyed

Physical Changes:
liquid freezing into solid
shredding a piece of paper
breaking glass
Chemical Changes:
Reactions may either produce heat or absorb heat.
If two substances are mixed and their color changes
Another sign of a chemical change is the production of a solid precipitate or the development of a gas

If you burned charcoal, the charcoal would react with oxygen, which changes it chemically.

An example of a physical change is when a snowman melts and become a puddle of water, Example 2 when you stomp on a can of pop and it changes It's shape ..... because it's squished. Example 3 When a ball is thrown through a window and it breaks. An example of chemical change is when you put a cake in the oven and it comes out cooked. Example 2 when a tree is burning down, Example 3 when fireworks exploded .

An example of a physical change is crumbling up paper because when you do it it is still paper. Another one is freezing ice, it is a physical change because its not a whole new substance. Another one is breaking glass because when you break it it is still glass. A chemical change is burning a house down, it is a chemical change because it is a whole new substance. Another one is TNT because when you blow it up it is a whole new substance. And another one is baking cookies because it turns into a whole new substance from all the ingredients. When substances go through changes the total mass stays the same, this is because matter cant be created or destroyed it can only change forms.

Physical change is when you have a piece of paper and you tear it in half, Or when you cut your nails with a clipper , Or when a piece of ice melts and turns into liquid. A chemical change is like if you put mentos in coca cola, Or when you put balking soda and vinegar together or you washing your clothes with soap going from clean to dirty.

3 Chemical Changes are
Burning a Tree
Lighting a firework into the sky
And Cleansing A Penny

3 Physical Changes are
Freezing Water
Boiling Water
And Ripping Paper

The law of Conversation is the mass of a substance that will remain constant whether it is whole or not.If it goes through a Chemical Change the masses of the products will equal the masses of the original reactants.

3 examples of phyiscal changes are :
•breaking glass
•filtering a solid from a liquid
•a solid expanding as it is heated
3 examples of chemical changes are :
Making a New Solid or Gas
Color Change
Change in Temperature.....
The Conservation of Matter is niether destroyed or created..

A shoe smashing a can is physical change.Ripping your homework in half is physical change.A snow man melting is a physical change.A flower growing up from the sun is a chemical change.Mixing vinegar and baking soda is a chemical change.Fireworks exploding is a chemical change.The definition of Law of Conservation of Matter is that if a substance undergoes a chemical change,the mass of the products will equal the masses of the original reactants.

Three Physical Changes:A pencil being broke,changing a solid into liquid & a pounding medal that's form into thin sheets.
Three Chemical Changes:Formation of rust,burning of a candle,& digesting of food.
Physical Change is when a substances is appearance but not identify by a chemical compositions.
Chemical Changes is when its been rearrange an identify by its own new properties .

Physical Changes - Ice melting into water, Braking a glass vase, Throwing a rock at a window.

Chemical Change - burning a tree, Fireworks, a plant growing from the sun.

Law of Conservation of Matter - matter is not created or destroyed. The mass of a substance will remain constant whether it is whole, separated into pieces, or in a different state. If a substance undergoes a chemical change, the masses of the products will equal the masses of the original reactants.

The law of conservation of matter:Matter on Earth is generally found in one of three different states: solid, liquid, or gas,and plasma.The state of matter that a substance has is a physical property.

Three examples of physical changes are water freezing into ice, snow melting into water, and ripping paper in half.
Three examples of chemical changes are burning wood, baking a cake, and making a model volcano erupt using baking soda and vinegar.
The Law of Conservation of Matter explains matter isn't created or destroyed. The mass is always there , whether it's whole, or into pieces.

3 examples of physical change are throwing a baseball into a window,hitting someone in the face,or water turning into an icecube.3 examples of chemical change are volcano erupting,a cake baking or a flower growing.The law of conversaytion of matter is neither created neither destroyed the main substance will stay constant weather it is whole or seperated into constant.

1. Ripping a piece of paper is a physical change.
2. Crushing a pop can is also another example of a physical change.
3. The last example of a physical change is breaking a piece of glass or a piece of clay.
4. An example of a chemical change is mixing baking soda and vinegar to make an explosive volcano.
5.Burning a piece of paper or wood is also another example of chemical change.
6.Baking something is also an example of a chemical change.
The Law of Conservation of Matter is the idea that matter can never be created or destroyed. The mass of a substance will always remain whether it is whole or in pieces, or in a different state.
