H2O is the compound water. Forming it from other things would be a chemical change. Using it to react with other substances and form new substances would also be a chemical change. But water just sitting there is not a chemical change. EX: hydrogen(gas) + oxygen(gas) forms water (chemical change) Water + sodium forms sodium hydroxide and hydrogen (gas) (chemical change) BUT water + sugar makes a sugar water solution (not a chemical change) nothing new was made, the sugar just dissolved and the water is still water
