Most of them receive hard water. Hard water forms when water seeps into the soil, where it dissolves minerals. The water may taste fresh, but it is contaminated with minerals that cause plumbing problems, foaming, and problems using soap. A physical property is a characteristic of a substance that can be observed or measured without changing the identity of the substance.

Silver is a shiny metal that conducts electricity very well. It can be molded into thin sheets, a property called malleability. Salt is opaque and brittle and conducts electricity when it dissolves in water, which it does quite easily. The physical properties of matter include color, hardness, malleability, solubility, electrical conductivity, density, melting point and boiling point.

Physical properties include color, density, hardness, and melting and boiling points. A chemical property describes the ability of a substance to undergo a specific chemical change. To identify a chemical property, we look for a chemical change. A chemical change always produces one or more types of matter that differ from the matter present before the change.

Rust formation is a chemical change because rust is a different type of matter than iron, oxygen and water present before rust formed.
