3 Physical Change Although some extensive properties (like shape, phase, etc.) of the material change, the material itself is the same before and after the change. The change can be “undone.”

4 Chemical Change The substances present at the beginning of the change are not present at the end; new substances are formed. The change cannot be “undone.” (Exception: Some reactions are reversible.)
