## Think about an igneous rock at the top of a mountain. If this rock went through the whole rock cycle, number the steps that would follow. 1. Step 1 Regolith is dumped into some type of reservoir, usually water, by deposition. 2. Step 2 Metamorphic rock begins to melt back into magma. 3. Step 3 Regolith is transported or eroded by rain or wind. 4. Step 4 Rock is broken down into regolith by weathering. 5. Step 5 Layers deposited begin to compact and cement together to form sedimentary rock. 6. Step 6 Sedimentary rock is buried deeper into the earth’s crust. The intense heat and pressure begins metamorphism and the rock turns into metamorphic rock. 7. Step 7 Magma is resurfaced from volcanic activity, cools, and becomes igneous rock.

Answer: The correct sequence according to the question is steps- 4→1→3→5→6→2→7. Explanation: The given steps show that how the rocks are recycled from one form to another form due to certain factors like weathering over geological time scale which was explained by James Hutton and he termed this concept as …

## A fuel oil tank is an upright cylinder, buried so that its circular top is 14 feet beneath ground level. the tank has a radius of 5 feet and is 15 feet high, although the current oil level is only 14 feet deep. calculate the work required to pump all of the oil to the surface. oil weighs 50lb/ft350lb/ft3.

Say we have a cylinder that has a height of dx, we see that the cylinder has a volume of:  Vcylinder = πr^2*h = π(5)^2(dx) = 25π dx Then, the weight of oil in this cylinder is:  Fcylinder = 50 * Vcylinder = (50)(25π dx) = 1250π dx.  Then, since …
