Question

Is burning a candle a chemical change?

Solution

Verified

The burning of a candle is both a physical and a chemical change.

When the candle melts, the physical change is obvious to the human eye, and it also gets cooled and reshaped.

When the wax melts near a flame and turns into wax vapor (change of state is observed), a chemical change can also be seen.
