in a physical change the particles stay the same. in a chemical change the particles are chemically altered.

There is a change in the physical properties of these particles. Their chemical formula remains intact.

The particles are affecting the form of a chemical substance and not turning into a new substance.

Corrosion is a chemical change. It can also cause a physical change in shape, etc, but it is a chemical change.

it happens when •A physical change is reversible, a chemical change is not.•the freezing of water would be a physical change because it can be reversed, whereas the burning of wood is a chemical change - you can't.

When a chemical change takes place, the chemical structure of particles involved changes (i.e. one or more new substances are formed). In a physical change, the physical state of the particles involved changes (e.g. a solid melts and becomes a liquid). The chemical structure of the particles does not change, and no new substance is formed.

it is a physical change, the particles do not combine with the water particles.

No. It is a physical or mechanical change.

Molecules permanently change. In a physical change the effects are reversible.

The reactants are transformed in products of the chemical reaction - if you understand molecules by particles of matter.

Yes, because the chemical composition of the gas particles does not change.

It depends. In most cases, it is a chemical change as the different colored species have different chemical structures. However, it is possible to change color by very finely dividing particles of matter and this is a physical change.

Physical because we can still seperate the particles

It is a chemical change because it is irreversible and the change happens on a molecular level.

It is a physical change. Al that happens is water vapor condensing.
