why are physical change and chemical change important ???????????

A physical change is one where the particles of the substances that are involved in the change are not broken up in any way. When water is heated for example, the temperature and energy of the water molecules increases and the liquid water evaporates to form water vapour. When this happens, some kind of change has taken place, but the molecular structure of the water has not changed. This is an example of a physical change. All changes in state are physical changes.

H2O(â„“)→H2O(g)

Conduction (the transfer of energy through a material) is another example of a physical change. As energy is transferred from one material to another, the energy of each material is changed, but not its chemical makeup. Dissolving one substance in another is also a physical change.

Definition 1: Physical change

A change that can be seen or felt, but that doesn't involve the break up of the particles in the reaction. During a physical change, the form of matter may change, but not its identity.

When a chemical change takes place, new substances are formed in a chemical reaction. These new products may have very different properties from the substances that were there at the start of the reaction.

please thumbs up

Chemical change

Definition 2: Chemical change

The formation of new substances in a chemical reaction. One type of matter is changed into something different.

We should know Physical and chemical changes as it makes us more conscious and aware about various things such as why stainless steel should not be put in a pickle jar, etc.

Hope it helps!
Cheers!
