All of the following are examples of chemical change except
a) rusting of a nail
b) melting ice
c) fermenting grapes
d) tarnishing of a silver bracelet
We know that chemical change takes place when one substance combines with other to form a new substance or it breaks down into two or more components.
Rusting of a nail, fermenting grapes and tarnishing of a silver bracelet are all examples of chemical change because in each of these a new substance is formed.
Melting ice is a physical change since there is no formation of new product only the state of water changes from solid to liquid.
Therefore, the correct answer is b) melting ice
