Chemical Properties and Chemical Changes

Chemical properties are those that can only be measured or experienced by altering the identity of matter.

Chemical properties include (but are not limited to)

To understand this, let's look at the first property - abilty to burn. We know that paper burns. However, this can only be seen by lighting the paper on fire, resulting in the loss of the paper and the creation of water, carbon dioxide and ash.

Changes of this nature, those that demonstrate chemical properties, are called chemical changes.
