Is combustible a physical property?

Wood is combustible, or burnable, which is a chemical property. Not only is there no loss of mass during burning, there is no loss or gain of mass during any chemical change. In other words, matter is neither created nor destroyed during a chemical change.

Then, is combustibility a physical or chemical property?

Combustion, being the exoteric reaction of a material, typically atmospheric oxygen, is absolutely a chemical reaction, so "Combustibility" is a chemical property, or sort of. (At the flash point, the vapor may cease to burn when the ignition source is removed.)

Subsequently, question is, is Melting Point a physical property? Examples of physical properties are: color, smell, freezing point, boiling point, melting point, infra-red spectrum, attraction (paramagnetic) or repulsion (diamagnetic) to magnets, opacity, viscosity and density. Note that measuring each of these properties will not alter the basic nature of the substance.

Herein, is mass a physical property?

Mass (like volume) is an extensive physical property because its value depends on the quantity of the matter, unlike temperature. It is not a chemical property as its measurement includes no chemical reaction and change.

Is density a physical property?

DENSITY is a physical property of matter, as each element and compound has a unique density associated with it. Density defined in a qualitative manner as the measure of the relative "heaviness" of objects with a constant volume.
