Physical and Chemical Changes

SWBAT determine whether a reaction was a physical or a chemical change by looking at what was produced in an experiment.
You can distinguish the liquids by examining their PROPERTIES.
Properties of Matter
There are two types of properties.
Physical Properties
A physical property is a characteristic that can be observed or measured without changing the identity of a substance.
Physical and Chemical Changes
There are 2 types of changes:
Physical and Chemical
You have a container of water and a container of motor oil. How can you decide which liquid is in each container?
Matter is everywhere.

Matter is anything that takes up space and has mass.

Matter is constantly experiencing both chemical and physical changes.
Chemical Properties
A chemical property is a characteristic that determines how a substance will interact with other substances during a chemical reaction.
SPI 0807.9.8 - Interpret the results of an investigation to determine whether a physical or chemical change has occurred.
Take 45 seconds to discuss with your neighbor. Be prepared to share your answers with the class.
A property is any characteristic that can be used to identify and describe matter.
Physical and Chemical
Physical Properties of Matter
•density: m/v
•color: The pigment or shade
•conductivity: electricity to flow through the substance
•malleability: if a substance can be flattened
•luster: how shiny the substance looks
Chemical Properties of Matter
* ability to burn
* ability to rust
changes occur when matter changes its property but not its chemical nature.

Physical changes are considered to be:
Changes in
: melting, freezing, condensing, boiling
Changes in
: cutting, breaking, building
Changes in
: inflating/deflating
: mixing and dissolving (mixing with water
Chemical changes are changes matter undergoes when it becomes new or different matter.

Evidence of chemical change includes:
•A gas is produced (bubbles form)
•A precipitate forms
•A precipitate is a solid that forms when 2 liquids are mixed together
•Temperature changes
•Color changes (think of rust, or a rotten banana)
•Odor or taste changes (think of rotten food)
A chemical change occurs when fireworks are used. Fireworks are made of metals such as magnesium and copper. These change chemically as they light up the sky.
Let's Practice.
Is it a chemical or physical change?
Consider these two questions:

Did it change size, color, shape (Physical Change)?
Did it become different matter (Chemical Change)?

Cutting Paper
Wood Log Burning
Crushing an Aspirin
Metal Rusting
An egg breaking
An egg rotting

Lab Stations
Instructions: At each station, you are presented with a substance or process. You will be asked if it represents a chemical or physical change scenario and the reasons for your answer. The third “follow-up” question is directly related to the definitions or characteristics of physical and chemical changes.
Station 1: Halloween glo-sticks
Station 2: Melting Wax
Station 3: Leaves Decomposing
Station 4: Carving Pumpkin
Station 5: Striking the match
Station 6: Popcorn popping
Station 7: Calcite + HCl
Station 8: Dissolving sugar and water
Station 9: Alka-Seltzer
1. The snap in the stick is a
reaction caused by the mixing of two components. Descriptions of these materials may be found at the following sites: http://daily.stanford.org/Daily96-97/11-6-96/NEWS/NEWbug06.html
2. Burning candle is a
change. The wax is still wax; it is now in a liquid state of matter rather than a solid.
3. Leaf decomposition is a
change caused by chemical reactions within the leaf structure.
4. Pumpkin carving is a
change—the pumpkin is now just in pieces; it is still of its original composition.
5. Striking a match is a
change caused by the reaction of chemicals on the tip of the match head instigated by the friction between the match head and the surface.
6. Popcorn popping is a
change. It looks different but is the same thing.
7. Calcite + HCl is a
change. The bubbles result from the chemical reaction between HCl and CaCO3 (Calcite) to give Carbon Dioxide gas.
8. Dissolving sugar and water is a
change. The sugar macromolecules are broken down into smaller molecules; but their form remains the same, which is shown through the descriptive taste
9. Alka-Seltzer in water is a
change. The fizzing indicates a chemical change, and the substance dissolving does not maintain its original chemical structure.
