Also Know, is removing salt from water a physical change? Take the table salt and dissolve it in the water in about a 1:10 volume ratio of salt to water. The dissolving of the salt changes the physical form of the NaCl but does not permanently change it chemically so when the water is removed you recover salt again as NaCl.
