Both have very simple explaination but yet hard to understood :

Physically Absorb Water : when water is absorbing by some material or compound during hydration process and we can also get back the water from that only compound through dehydration process is known as water is absorbing physically. Example:

Batthing Towel absorbs water and can be gotten back by drying out process.

Chemically Absorb Water : It is the process when some material or compound takes/absorb some water and conevrt it into some different process now you can''t back your water in the same form. Example :

When the roots of a a plant absorb water it is a physical change that turns into a chemical change. The water evaporates into the roots and is turned into energy for the plant.
