Question 5.
Give examples to explain the difference between changes that can or cannot be reversed.
One way we can group changes is to see if they can be reversed or not.

1. Changes that can be reversed: In such changes, we can return back to original position if the cause of change is withdrawn; for example,
• heating of milk,
• drying of clothes,
• knitting a sweater,
• streching a rubber band,
• melting of ice, etc.
2. Changes that cannot be reversed: The changes in which we cannot go back to original position, even if we withdraw the cause of change; for example,
• boiling of egg,
• making curd from milk,
• making flour from grain,
• flowering of a bud,
• producing biogas from cow dung, etc.

Question 6.
A thick coating of a paste of Plaster of Paris (POP) is applied over the bandage on a fractured bone. It becomes hard on drying to keep the fractured bone immobilised. Can the change in POP be reversed?
No. Because it is an irreversible change (i.e., chemical change).

Question 7.
A bag of cement lying in the open gets wet due to rain during the night. The next day the sun shines brightly. Do you think the changes, which have occurred in the cement, could be reversed?
