    A physical change does not change the nature of the chemical (e.g. condensation of vapors, dissolution of sugar in water, etc…)

  • CHEMICAL. Physical is what you do to a piece of paper when you rip it apart. You my have changed its appearance, but you have not changed the fact that it is paper, its identity. Its chemical composition has not changed. usually it’s something like bending, breaking, cracking, splitting, etc. Chemical is when you change the molecular structure or something. Baking is a chemical reaction, believe it or not. Where do you think the air pockets in bread come from? Gas released because of a chemical reaction. plus the cake is turning from liquid to solid.
