# Is distillation a chemical or physical change?

Oct 17, 2016

#### Answer:

Distillation is an example of $\text{physical change}$.

#### Explanation:

$\text{Physical changes}$ are often changes of state: solid to liquid, fusion; liquid to gas, vaporization; gas to solid, deposition. No chemical bonds are disrupted in this process, except the weak(er) dispersion forces between molecules.
