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 Rock’s Tale Imagine that you are a rock (igneous, metamorphic, or sedimentary). Describe how the materials that make you up moved through the rock cycle to form you. Be sure to include at least one point in time where you were an igneous rock, one point when you were a sedimentary rock, and one point when you were a metamorphic rock, and describe the processes that caused you to change form. PLEASE WRITE ONE TO TWO PARAGRAPHS WITH DETAIL.

Answer: by adding or removing neutrons Explanation: Isotopes are the elements which have same atomic number but different mass number. Atomic number is the number of electrons or number of protons in a neutral atom.Mass number is the sum of number of protons and the number of neutrons. Thus changing …
