Best Answer

Elements change state when something changes, such as having another substance added to them or a change in temperature.

Elements: solids, liquids, gases. solid to liquid = when the ice is layed out in heat it will melt to a liquid liquid to gas= when water from a pond or a glass of water when part of the water cycle is happening the water evaporates. gas to liquid= condensation (part of the water cycle). liquid to solid= freeze water or another liquid and you can get ice... that's all i have for ya!!!!

Does an object change of state change its shape?

Usually, yes.

What is meant by change in state?

A change of state is a change in the object from a solid to a liquid. Other changes of state are a solid to a gas or from a liquid to a solid.

Why is change of color a physical change?

Because a physical change just alters the appearance of an object, where as a chemical change alters the texture or state of an object.

When will an object change its state of motion?

An object changes its state of motion when it accelerates or decelerates, usually caused by a force.

What property is the state of matter in a object?

physical change

What causes an object to change its state of motion?

A resultant force.

How can you identify that a change is physical change?

A physical change is when the object changes shape, color, or physical state.

What change of state and wat energy changes occur when water freezes?

The state of change is from most likely a liquid to a solid, and the energy source (with a lower temp. than the object)will freeze the object.

Does a substance change mass if it changes physically?

No. Mass is a measure of how much matter is in an object, and that does not change when the matter changes states. The matter will either contract or expand, depending on the current state and the state to be reached, but that does not change how much matter is in the object.

Will the weight of an object change if it changes it state?

No. The mass of an object doesn't change (Law of Conservation of Mass), therefore its weight won't change either (weight = mass x gravity).

What is a reversible physical change?

A reversible physical change is melting an ice cube or changing the state of an object.

What causes a change in the motion of an object?

One must apply an acceleration to change the state of motion of a mass

What is called when an object goes from solid to liquid?

It is a change of state called melting.

Does pressure affect changes of state?

yes, if you apply pressure to an object it will change the state, by changing the shape of it

What is inertia and what determines how much i ntertia an object has?

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. The velocity of an object will determine the inertia that the object has.

What is the changing of matter from a solid state to a liquid state called?

It's called a physical change, or melting. A chemical change would be a change in the chemicals that make up the object.

Is evaporation of moth ball a physical or chemical change?

Physical because evaporation means it just changes the state of the object (gaseous). It does not change the chemical makeup of the object so it is not a chemical change.

When an object has changed shape state and volume and density and no new substance is formed what type of change is it?

This is a physical change.

What is the definition of the word inertia?

Inertia is the resistance of an object to change from a state of rest to a state of motion, change it's speed of motion, or go from motion to rest.

What is a change in the state of motion evidence of?

A change in the state of motion of an object indicates that a force has been applied to it. It accelerates in response, and this appears as a change in its state of motion. It may speed up, slow down, or change direction in response to the applied force.

What is the def of inertia?

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of motion.

Is a snow cone melting in a cup show a change in object state of matter?


What is a change in the object without changing the object's identity?

This is the easiest question I have ever heard of. It's obviously state change!!?

The tendency for objects to resist a change in their state of motion is called?

Inertia. The tendency for an object to resist change is called inertia.

Does the mass of an object change when it goes from a solid state to a liquid?

No it doesn't, only when it changes to a gas state does it lose mass
