    A physical change can affect the size, shape or color of a substance but does not affect its composition. The substances may be changed to another phase (i.e. gas, liquid, solid) or separated or combined.

    Examples:

    when ice melts
    when sulfur is mixed with iron filings.
    breaking a glass
    dissolving sugar in water
