Physical property refer to the characteristic of matter that can be observed or measure without changing its composition.Examples are color, odor, phase of matter, freezing point, melting point, viscosity, density, volume, malleability and molecular weight.


Chemical properties of a matter relates as how a substance changes its composition to form another substance. 
Examples are flammability, reactivity and oxidation state.

Flammability is the ability of a substance to burn in the presence of oxygen. Example of flammable substances is ethanol. When ethanol and oxygen enters a chemical reaction, it releases energy in the form of heat and light (fire) and as well as a formation of new substances which are carbon dioxide and water.

Ethanol + Oxygen ---> Carbon Dioxide + Water + Fire
