Hello,

A chemical process will change the chemical composition of something, whereas physical only changes the arrangement of molecules of it, so:

A) Corrosion of aluminum metal- chemical: this is "rusting" caused by oxidation

B) Cutting a diamond-physical: there is no chemical change made here, just a separation of moecules

C) Burning gasoline-chemical: gasoline reacts with oxygen to form water and carbon dioxide

D) Boiling water-physical: this makes the molecules move faster and farther apart
