Rusting and oxydation.

• B.

Burning and rusting.

• C.

A change in size, shape, or form.

C. A change in size, shape, or form.
Explanation
The correct answer is "A change in size, shape, or form." This answer is correct because physical changes refer to alterations in the physical properties of a substance without changing its chemical composition. Rusting and oxidation are examples of chemical changes, not physical changes. Burning is also a chemical change as it involves the reaction of a substance with oxygen. On the other hand, a change in size, shape, or form refers to physical changes such as melting, freezing, boiling, or dissolving, where the substance retains its chemical identity.

### How can one kind of matter change into another kind of matter?

• A.

When a physical change takes place.

• B.

When a chemical change takes place.

• C.

When a kinetic change takes place.

B. When a chemical change takes place.
Explanation
When a chemical change takes place, one kind of matter can change into another kind of matter. In a chemical change, the substances involved undergo a transformation at the molecular level, resulting in the formation of new substances with different properties. This can involve the breaking and forming of chemical bonds, rearrangement of atoms, or the release or absorption of energy. Examples of chemical changes include combustion, rusting, and the reaction between acids and bases. In contrast, physical changes only alter the physical properties of a substance, such as its shape, size, or state, without changing its chemical composition.

### Melting ice does not involve a ___________

• A.

Physical change

• B.

Chemical change

• C.

Kinetic change

B. Chemical change
Explanation
Melting ice is a physical change because it involves a change in the state of matter from solid to liquid without any alteration in the chemical composition of the substance. The molecules in ice rearrange and gain enough energy to break the intermolecular forces holding them together, resulting in the formation of liquid water. No new substances are formed during this process, making it a physical change rather than a chemical change.
