a) chemical b) physical c) physical d) chemical e) chemical f) chemical

Work Step by Step

a) Since the property involves a chemical reaction (combustion) a chemical reaction must occur and thus, it must be a chemical property b) The composition of steel can be measured using methods other than a chemical reaction and the property is not related to a chemical reaction. c) Density can be measured based on the mass and volume and thus does not require a chemical reaction for the property to be measured and it is not related to the reactivity of the compound. d) The process of a compound dissolving is a chemical reaction and thus the solubility of a compound in a particular solvent can only be determined via a chemical reaction. e) Combustion is a chemical reaction and thus, whether a substance combusts in air can only be determined through a chemical reaction. f) The process of ripening is a chemical reaction and can only be determined through a chemical reaction.
