A Text Book of Inorganic Chemistry.pdf

Taken from CHAPTER I, CONSTITUTION OF MATTER: The science of chemistry may be described as the study of a certain class of changes which matter is capable of undergoing.

Matter is susceptible of a variety of changes, some of which are regarded as physical and others as chemical Thus, when a steel knitting-needle is rubbed upon a magnet, the need undergoes a change, by virtue of which it becomes endowed with the power of attracting to itself iron filings or nails ; and when an ordinary lucifer match is rubbed upon a match-box the match undergoes a change, resulting in the production of flame. In the first case the change is said to be 2k physical one, while the ignition and combustion of the match is a chemical change.

When a fragment of ice is gently warmed, it is changed from a hard, brittle solid to a mobile, transparent liquid ; and when white of is gently heated, it changes from a transparent, colourless liquid to an opaque white solid. These changes, which appear at first sight to be. of a similar order, are in reality essentially different in their nature : the transformation of solid ice into liquid water is a physical change, the coagulation of albumen is a chemical change.

Again, when certain substances (such as the materials which constitute the so-called luminous paint) are exposed to a bright light, they undergo a change whereby they become invested with.
