A rock that contains tiny, Connection spaces through which water can move is said to be ..................... Permable
One agent of chemical weathering is ................,which combines with water to form carbonic acid Carbin Doixide
The action of animal most commonly can cause the type of weathering known as ............... Mechanical
Rapid chemical weathering can be caused by ..........,which is rain combined with pollutants. Acid Rain
Some plants produce acids that result in ......... Weathering Chemical
The factors that determine the rate of weathering is ....... Water
After chemical weathering, the chemical makeup of the weathered rock is ....... than the original rock Different
Freezing and Thawing are an example of ........ weathering Chemical
The movement of rock particles by ice,wind,water,or gravity is called ............ Erosion
The rate of chemical weathering is ........... in hot, wet climates than in cold, dry climates. Faster
The gas that cause rock containing iron to oxidize is .............. Oxygen
The type of weathering that occurs due to release of pressure is ......... weathering Mechanical
Plant roots that force cracks in rocks father apart are an agent of ........ weathering Mechanical
What has a rock probably been chemically weathered by if it contains iron and becomes soft, crumbly, and reddish-brown in color? Oxygen
What may the growth of plant roots and animals activity result in? Mechanical
What is the agent of mechanical weathering called in which rock in worn away by the grinding action of other rock particles? Abrasion
Granite will last a long time when it is used for building in what type of climate? cool
What kind of weathering causes the mineral composition of rock to charge? Chemical
What type of climate causes weathering to happen rapidly? Hot, Wet,
What is ice wedging? Water freezers in rock
What is uniformitarianism? The same process in the past
Why does a permeable rock weather easily? That allow water and other stuff to seep in.
What can scientists infer from the rounded shape of the rounded shape of the Appalachian Mountains Because they are rounded there are older
A marble statue is left exposed to the weather. What Agent of mechanical weathering probably will cause it to weather? Freezing and Thawing
Describe how freezing and thawing of water causes mechanical weathering. Water freezing in rocks
Explain how oxygen causes chemical weathering. Iron combines with oxygen and water to form chemical weathering (Oxidation).
The city has hot, rainy summers, freezing winter temperatures, and air pollution from burning of coal in the power plant. Predict how the city's climate affects the weathering of the statue. Climate would cause acid rain, the hot/cold climate result in freezing and thawing and ice wedging, and that faster weathering occurs in the hot and wet climate.
