Textbook Problem

Which observations below describe chemical properties?

(a) Sugar is soluble in water.

(b) Water boils at 100 °C.

(c) Ultraviolet light converts O3 (ozone) to O2 (oxygen).

(d) Ice is less dense than water.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

From the given statements, the chemical property has to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

Chemical property:  The term refers to chemical reactions that a substance might undergo.

Physical change: A change in which the substance retains in form or state without altering in composition.  It is temporary and easily reversible.

Chemical change: A change in which the substance loses its identity and produces one or more new substances by change in its composition.  It is permanent and not easily reversible.

Explanation

Reason for true statements:

Ultraviolet light converts O3 to O2.

The above reaction result in the new substance formation oxygen molecule which ozone lost its identity.  Hence, the statement C is the chemical property.

The correct answer is option c.

Reason for false statements:

Option a): Sugar crystal get dissolves in water where the solid s
