What is a chemical change cutting paper mashing potatoes chopping down a tree burning wood mixing paint?
Burning wood is a chemical change.
No, it is a physical change. If you think about cutting the wood, the pieces will be smaller than the log, but they will have all of the same properties as they did when they were put together. An example of a chemical change is burning the wood. The act of burning it would be a chemical change since it is converting the wood into carbon and water vapor.
