A physical change is just a change in the size, shape, or state of a compound. If something undergoes a physical change, it's still the same stuff after the change, just in a different form. A chemical change is a change that actually changes the compound you're looking at. In other words, a chemical reaction has occurred in which the products are different compounds from the reactants. Using this information, you should be able to figure out the type of change for each situation you listed!
