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 …

Which is not a process involved in the formation of sedimentary rock?a:weatheringb:compactionc:depositiond:extrusion

There are four types of fundamental forces in nature.These are named as gravitational force,electromagnetic force,strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force. As per the question we have to understand the role of strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force. An atom consists of a nucleus surrounded by extra nuclear part …

The mountain shown is composed of deformed sedimentary layers. they are located near a tectonic plate boundary and are still increasing in elevation due to –

The correct answer is – Andes Mountains. The Andes Mountain Range is a result of a oceanic-continental convergence. This mountain range stretches alongside the western coast of the South American continent, in close proximity of the convergent boundary between the South American tectonic plate, which is continental one, and the …

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 …

Which of the following distinctions are used to identify sedimentary rock? Select all that apply. conditions it was formed under when it was formed where is was formed how many layers it consists of what it is composed of

1.   The equation 2NO2↔N2O4 shows a system  (1 point) in chemical equilibrium. 2.   If an endothermic reaction is in equilibrium, what will happen when you increase the temperature?  (1 point) More products form.  3.   One way to determine the degree of saturation of a solid-liquid solution is to drop a crystal of the solute into …

Composting is a very good way of recycling organic substances, you can do it by placing organic materials onto one another such as: Grass clippings, leaves and vegetable scraps. Composting can be a lot of work, you must put time and effort into the project, but in the end it will …
