The conversion of water to ice is considered a physical change, whereas the conversion of iron to rust is considered a chemical change. Why?

  • Physical Science -

    A chemical change is a change in which something new is formed


    Physical change is a change in which the substance changes form but keeps its same chemical composition

    In ice, each of the molecules is connected to the molecules next to it, making it hard. Freezing is a change of state of a material and it is a physical (not a chemical) change
