We’re being asked to determine what would happen to the contents of a sealed container containing a drop of water which then vaporizes.
Let’s first define a physical change
Physical change → there is a change in a matter as it goes from one physical state to another (e.g. vaporization, a physical change from liquid to gas)
In physical changes:
We put a drop of water into a container and seal the container. The drop of water then vaporizes.
Does its contents change upon vaporization?
