Ofcourse!!

As you would know milk is made out of curd(ma mom would know how..but to my knowledge u put a little amount of yesterday's curd into a casserole an add hot milk to it...let it set through the night ,and Voila! u get curd in the in the morning or it may even tk longer depends on the temp.)*i'm n tht sure abt d process i might hv missed something out ..ma mom would know... *

Nw bk to the answer:

No. 1)There is a complete change in orientation((milk is liquid curd is semi))...

No. 2)There is change in odor...

No. 3)-The bacteria releases lactic acid...

No. 4)-There is a drop in pH value due to formation of acid...

All these things together prove that setting of curd Is a chemical change

Setting of curd is a chemical change because we cannot get the milk we used to make the curd and a new substance is formed.
