Physical change z reversible nd no new substance z 4med;water undergoes fusion 2 4m ice on coolin,ice undergoes melting n turns 2 water on heatin,as u can c d change z rversible n no new substance 4med

very interesting! Wen water(liquid) put in a fridge to make block (ice) dats d process of FREEZING as a (physical) change of form & state of matter. Wic d change is easily reversible (back to melting). Therefore, answer is "D"

Ice is water, hence no new substance former

only change of state occurs(nd dat dosnt mean dat new substance are formed)

ALL i knw z dat no new substance z formed(i.e liquid 2 solid) and it can be easily reversible

t s true no new substance s 4rm wen a liquid is cooled it wil turn to solid nd also wen solid is heated t wil trn to liquid so it is vice versa dat s no new substance is 4rm

Let me ansa this question in my dreams or when I'm sleep walking lol.def C no new substance is formed liquid to solid (condensation)
  • lemibare: liquid to solid is not condensation... But freezing i.e wen u put water (liquid) into d fridge, it will chnge to block (ice) wic is d process of freezing... But condensation is vapour to liquid or solid. Therefore, d answer is "C"

the process is reversible and so no new substance is formed..,its therefore a physical change.

In physical change new substances are formed. So cooling of water to obtain ice new substances was formed.
  • cyberformz: physical change is a change dt z reversible . D coolin of water to form ice z reversible in dt d ice cn change bak to liquid water on heatin or exposure. While d rest er chemical Change bcos d product formed cnt b changed bk to d reactants
