Compare and contrast a physical property and a chemical property?

A physical property is something that can be changed without changing the actual composition of something, such as shape or density. A chemical property is something that actual is part of the composition of the object, such as atoms or mass. Think of it like a car, a physical property of the car is its shape or condition. You can dent the car, even send it to get crushed into a square at the junkyard, technically its still the same. Everything that made it up is still there. However if there is rust, metal is being eaten away when reacting with oxygen, metal was part of made up the car and now some is missing and the composition is not the same as before, showing it is a chemical property.
