Physical Property Definition: The measurement of a physical property may change the arrangement of matter in a sample, but not the structure of its molecules. In other words, a physical property may involve a physical change, but not a chemical change.

Examples: Examples of physical properties include mass, density, color, boiling point, temperature, and volume.
