    Please help urgent

    Please help, I have few questions

    1.Natural gas burns with a yellow flame, a chemical or physical properties?

    2.An egg is fried in a skillet, a chemical or physical properties?

    3. When iron is dissovled into a acid. Has the iron atoms destroyed? Give answers with why?

    4.A particular compound is thought to be a pure compound. Analysis of three
    samples of the material yield the following results.
    Mass of sample Mass of carbon Mass of hydrogen
    Sample 1 1.000 g 0.937 g 0.0629 g
    Sample 2 0.244 g 0.229 g 0.0153 g
    Sample 3 0.100 g 0.094 g 0.0063 g
    Could the material be a pure compound?
    I really dont understand this question

    Welcome to PF, someone21.

    All chemics is physics. So physical is arguably always the right answer.
    For the rest, please read this thread first, especially point 1 and 2.

    Asking someone to follow forum rules doesn't work, I have tried that at chemicalforums last Wednesday.

    Find the relative mole values and the empirical formula , if the three samples have distinct empirical formulas than you have a crude substance if they are the same then the probability is that you have one compound.

    No need for that, just comparing percentage composition will be enough.
