1.14 Which part of the following descriptions of a compound or element refers to its physical properties and which to its chemical properties?

(a) Calcium carbonate is a white solid with a density of 2.71 g/cm. It reacts readily with an acid to produce gaseous carbon dioxide.

(b) Gray powdered zinc metal reacts with purple iodine to give a white compound.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

To determine: Which part refers to physical and chemical properties for calcium carbonate is a white solid with a density of 2.71 g/cm3. It reacts readily with an acid to produce gaseous carbon dioxide.

Explanation

Chemical species will show both, chemical and physical properties.

A physical property: Will not change its chemical composition. It can be seen, or it could be a physical phase, color, conductivity, etc. All these properties will not change its chemical composition.

A chemical property: will affect its chemical composition. Chemical properties state how they react with other material in order to form new components...

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

To determine:
