Does boiling water involve a chemical change?
Even though it may appear so, boiling water does not involve a chemical change. It is merely changing the state of the substance.
No. Water boiling, is a physical change and not a chemical change because the simplest way to put it is that physical change is something you can reverse such as melting or freezing of ice, where as chemical change is not reversible. But you can reverse the evaporation which eventually becomes water again (rain). So water boiling is in fact a physical change.
It depends on what is boiling. If you are boiling WATER, then it is NOT a chemical change, it is a physical change (change of state from liquid to gas). If you are cooking food on the stove, a chemical change is occuring. That is, the chemical bonds within the food molecules are actually changing. One way you can tell that it is a chemical change is that you can't "uncook" food, but you can…
