No - it's a physical change. The paper is chemically the same whether it's a whole sheet, or been shredded.
it changed from paper to paper.
Shredding paper is a physical change because you can put all the pieces of paper back together again, i.e. it is still paper. The chemical nature has not changed, only the APPEARANCE has changed.
Yes. Shredded paper is still paper. You have not changed its chemical composition.
because it only changes its appearance
It is a physical change as the paper is still paper after you fold it.
what are some few examples of a chemical change
Tearing paper is a physical change.
Cutting down a tree. shredding of paper
Paper ripping is a physical change not a chemical change.
Yes - and no.... Physically it's still paper - but the information on it can no longer be read.
It is a physical change because it is still a sheet of paper.
A physical change is any kind of change that occurs in matter without changing its chemical composition. Examples of physical changes include melting, vaporization, sublimation, a piece of glass shattered into pieces, shredding paper.
Physical change. The paper is still a piece of paper; nothing happened to the chemical composition of it.
It is a physical change.
in chemical change the chemical properties of an object are changed. for example a paper is burned. both the chemical and physical properties of the paper are change. the paper itself changed into carbon. that is a chemical change. if for example the paper is cut into small pieces that is called physical change because the paper is still a paper but the physical properties of the paper are changed since it became smaller when you cut it.
physical and chemical depends if it is physical and chemical change. if it is that it deals with science because physical change is when it does not change by chemical. for example burning a piece of paper is physical change. Chemical change is when a substance is changed by a chemical.
A physical change to the paper would be ripping it. A chemical change would be setting it on fire and burning it.
A chemical change. Physical changes can be undone. You cannot unburn paper.
Tearing paper represents a physical and not a chemical change. Chemical bonds are not broken in this instance, but paper is physically separated (by force) from other paper.
Physical change Tearing a piece of paper is a physical change.
Physical change ............ scrunch the paper up Chemical change ............ burn the paper
