Answer:

My word.....

Explanation:

Physical changes are largely changes of state....#"solid to liquid"#....#"liquid to solid"#...or #"liquid to gas"#, the which occurs in #"distillation"#.

And so for an example...

#"ice"stackrel"melting"rarr"water"stackrel"boiling/distillation"rarr"steam"#

#"steam"stackrel"condensation"rarr"water"stackrel"fusion"rarr"ice"#

These are all phase changes, and hence examples of #"physical change"#...
