Expert Answer:

Preparing crystals of copper sulphate from copper and sulphuric acid involves both physical and chemical changes.

Physical change: A physical change involves changes in the structure, shape, density etc of the substance.
                         Here crystals of copper sulphate are formed from copper and sulphuric acid. Crystallisation is a physical change.
 
Chemical change: In chemical change new substance is formed.The properties of the products formed are different from properties of reactants.
                           Here the reaction between copper and sulphuric acid gives copper sulphate.
