How is running water an agent of erosion?

Running water can overcome the force of gravity on sediment and move it from one place to another place; the definition of erosion.

Why is wind an important agent of erosion?

Wind can pick up small aggregates and soil particles and displace them in another soil series. Wind can also erode rocks by picking up particles of sand that then slowly erode

What is the most effective agent of erosion?

Most sediments are carried by water, with an assist from gravity, so gravity induced moving water is the most effective agent of erosion.
