Is propane that burns in a barbecue a physical or chemical change?

Propane burning is a chemical change. The propane reacts with oxygen. New compounds are the result of the process.Let me add a little more information to this. Propane stored in the tank is in liquid form under pressure (actually an equilibrium of propane gas in the top of the tank, and liquid propane in the bottom). When you open the valve, the gas escapes into the hose and goes to the burners.As the gas escapes, some of the liquid propane evaporates into gas form.The change from liquid to gas is a physical change.
