## 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 …

## Minerals will form from magma and lava as the lava cools; the rate of cooling will determine the crystal size in the mineral formed. t or f?

The given statement is True. Minerals will form from lava as the lava cools down. The rate by the lava will cool down determines the crystal size in the minerals. If the sticky magma cools quickly, then it forms small crystals. If the magma is trapped for a longer time …

## What sequence of events can lead to magma becoming soil

Since we are given the amount of moles of each element, to calculate for the mass we need to remember that: Mass = Molar mass * Moles Moles = Atom / (6.022*10^23 atoms / mole) 6.022*10^23 atoms / mole is the Avogadro’s constant to convert atoms to moles. So when …
