(i) Drying of shirt in the Sun is a physical change. As, in this change no new substance is formed. (ii) Since, in rising of hot air over a radiator no new substance is formed, hence it is a physical change. (iii) While burning of kerosene in a lantern, carbon dioxide and water vapour is formed, hence it is a chemical change. (iv) In this change a new substance is formed, hence it is a chemical change. (v) While churning of milk cream to get butter, no new substance is formed, hence it is a physical change.
