These changes may be observe by us at school, at home, in the playground in the garden or any other place. A change can bring about different kinds of effect in the things around us. Some of the effect brought about are permanent in nature, and hence, cannot be reversed . However, some effects are about in position, shape, size or state of the things. These effects are temporary in nature, and hence can be reversed.
REVERSIBLE AND IRREVERSIBLE CHANGES
A change which can be reversed by the conditions is called a reversible change.
Eg. Melting of ice, dissolving of salt in water
A change that cannot be reversed by reversing the condition is called an irreversible change.
Eg. Burning of paper, curdling of milk

Most of the changes happening around us are non-periodic changes, occurrence of floods and cyclones are some of them.

e.g. Changing the direction of flow of river by building a dam.

Eg. Growh of plant, rusting of iron Some change take place in a fraction of second, such changes are called fast changes
Eg. Occurance of lightning during thunderstrom, earthquakes.
