Can the process of melting of ice-cream be considered as a physical change?

The melting of ice cream is a physical change. Liquid ice-cream solidifies again on freezing without change in chemical properties.

Physical change and Chemical change

A change in which a substance changes its physical properties is called a physical change.

  • A physical change is generally reversible.
  • In such a change, no new substance is formed.
  • Examples of physical changes are boiling, melting, freezing, and shredding.

A change in which one or more new substances are formed is called a chemical change.

  • A chemical change is also called a chemical reaction.
  • All new substances are formed as a result of chemical changes.
  • For example, digestion of food in our body, ripening of fruits, fermentation of grapes, etc.
