examples of chemical properties
Best Results From Wikipedia Yahoo Answers Youtube
A chemical property is any of a material's properties that becomes evident during a chemical reaction; that is, any quality that can be established only by changing a substance's chemical identity. Simply speaking, chemical properties cannot be determined just by viewing or touching the substance; the substance's internal structure must be affected for its chemical properties to be investigated.
Chemical properties can be contrasted with physical properties, which can be discerned without changing the substance's structure. However, for many properties within the scope of physical chemistry, and other disciplines at the border of chemistry and physics, the distinction may be a matter of researcher's perspective. Material properties, both physical and chemical, can be viewed as supervenient; i.e., secondary to the underlying reality. Several layers of superveniency are possible.
Chemical properties can be used for building chemical classifications.
Examples of chemical properties
- Reactivity against other chemical substances
- Heat of combustion
- Enthalpy of formation
- Chemical stability in a given environment
- Preferred oxidation state(s)
- Coordination number
- Capability to undergo a certain set of transformations, for example molecular dissociation, chemical combination, redox reactions under certain physical conditions in the presence of another chemical substance
- Preferred types of chemical bonds to form, for example metallic, ionic, covalent
For example hydrogen has the potential to ignite and explode given the right conditions. This is a chemical property.
Metals in general do they have chemical properties of reaction with an acid. Zinc reacts with hydrochloric acid to produce hydrogen gas. This is a chemical property.

Answers:Electronegativity Ionization potential pH Reactivity against other chemical substances Heat of combustion Toxicity Stability Flammability Preferred oxidation state(s) Coordination number Capability to undergo a certain set of transformations e.g. molecular dissociation, chemical combination, redox reactions under certain physical conditions in the presence of another chemical substance Preferred types of bonds to form e.g., metallic, ionic, covalent Chemical properties can be used for building chemical classifications. Examples of really simple chemical properties for students: Gasoline -- burns in air Water -- does not burn in air Iron -- rusts Gold -- does not rust Chalk -- reacts with vinegar Table salt -- does not react with vinegar Copper -- rusts in water
Answers:A and C Reactivity - how a certain chemical will react to another Flammability - if combustion/heat will result in a reaction EDIT: which would make it D ;P
Answers:Yes you can.
Answers:pH - a chemical property produced by a molecules ability to donate or accept protons eg H2O is pH 7 Redox potential - a molecules ability to act as an oxidising or reducing agent. KMnO4 is an oxidiser, H+ is a reducer Valency - the number of electrons in the outer shell of an atom metallic or non metallic - Elemental property which affects how atoms arrange themselves in their solid form eg carbon is a non metal, Iron is
