(C) physical changes
(D) none of these
Topic: Chemistry Question Answer
Answer: physical change
Explanation: When ice melts, it undergoes a physical change. After melting, the ice turns into water, which can then be frozen again. Physical changes are those that do not result in the formation of a new substance. In these, the chemical composition and molecular structure of the substance do not change. These changes are temporary. When the cause of the process is removed, the process is reversed. Physical changes are changes in the physical state, condition, shape, size, volume, etc. of substances. Physical changes are changes like melting, crystallization, evaporation, condensation, or solidification of substances.
