Best Answer

Yes, it undergoes the clues that indicate that a chemical change has happened.

  • new colour appears
  • heat or light is produced
  • bubbles or gas are formed
  • a solid forms into a liquid
  • change is hard or impossible to reverse

Four out of the five are met. A solid does not turn into a liquid during this process.

Is heating copper sulfate pentahydrate a chemical reaction?

No, it is not a chemical reaction. The added heat only drives the water molecules out of the crystal structure. No bonds are made or broken. Actually, it is a chemical change, because there are bonds between the water and CuSO4. by heating, these bonds are broken, there is a color change not coming from the reactant.
