Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "chemical physical change" to get these possible sources:
In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

Just remember that with a PHYSICAL change the chemical make up of the item remains the same; it changes it's looks but is the same chemically.
When CHEMICAL changes occur, then the make up changes as well.
For example when ice melts, the ice is now water but the chemical make up remains the same - thus PHYSICAL change
But when milk becomes "sour", then it's not the exact same milk anymore - it has added substances that caused the milk to sour - thus, it's a CHEMICAL change.
