What is weathering?
the natural process by which atmospheric and eviromental agents ,such as wind,rain, and decomposite rocks "Weathering" (proper spelling) is the breaking down of natural and artificial materials through contact with the earth and its atmosphere, water, and other biological factors.

Weathering is the breaking down of rocks in situ. This includes disintegration and solution of minerals (i.e. chemical), breaking down of rock by animals and plants (biologica…l), and then there is the obvious physical weathering, including freeze-thaw and exfoliation. Erosion is the process by which rock is broken down and carried away by wind, rivers, oceans and glaciers primarily (though also including other minor and specific types).
Weathering is caused by complexation in a mineral weathering due to nitric acid.
Sand is very abrasive. Weathering in the desert would be the wearing down of rocks.
weathering is when something changes weathering is when something changes
weathering is a your mp thanku
Rocks may be broken physically into smaller pieces. They may also be broken as a result of change in chemical composition. The breaking down of rocks (either physically or che…mically) at or near the earth's surface is called weathering. Rocks are weatherd in different ways such as: 1.Weathering of rocks by water 2. Weathering of rocks by the wind 3. Weathering of rocks by plants 4. Weathering of rocks by animals 5. Weathering of rocks by the people
wheather is changes of the air and erosion is breaking down of ice, air, and water.
weathering is not the same as eroding!!! but it is when something brakes down or gets smaller naturally (preferably rocks). Physical weather: you can have: freeze thaw whi…ch is when water gets into a crack, freezes over night (when water freeze it expands) pushes the crack open a bit more, then more water comes in a this keeps happening until it cracks in 1/2. Physical Weathering: onion skin weathering usually happens is the dessert: the rock get so hot in the day and expands, then quickly gets freezing cold at night and contract (after many night of this happening, it sheds the outer layer, like an onion skin, and this keep happening). Warning: this happens after a very very long period of time. Chemical Weathering: chemical weathering is when acid rain or chemical in the river etc react with mineral in rocks (( usually in sedimentary rocks)). Biological Weathering: this is when roots of plants grow into rock cracks, prizing open the cracks more and more. it is also when small animal burrow into cracks etc. there are more types but these are the major ones! hope this helps :)
Wind weathering is a type of weather with wind in it.
The difference is what the cause or material is. For example: Take two events of raining, one of them is acid rain. Acid rain would seep into limestone or rock, causing it to …break into pieces. Natural weathering would be the regular rain causing pieces of a rock to break off as it is tumbling/rolling.
weathering and erosion are steps that happen when it rains.
Weathering can be all kinds of things, for example, the wind blowing hard on a building above the sea and making holes in it is weathering. Also the sea hitting the cliffs and… making bits fall off it is weathering.
This helps prcess exposed rocks and decompose. Weathering of rocks happen as a result of mechanical action of water and wind.
Physical weathering can happen in different ways. The minerals in a rock expand if it gets hotter and contract if it cools. These changes can produce STRONG forces.
Weathering is the breaking down of rocks in situ. It acts through a variety of means, including frost shattering and ex-foliation. There are a number of different classificati…ons of weathering, including biological, chemical and mechanical (including the aforementioned examples). Biological weathering includes the action of tree roots and animal burrowing, chemical includes chemical reactions and also corrosion due to dissolution of soluble minerals. I hope this answers your question.
Wear away or change the appearance or texture of something by longexposure to the air.
It is mechanical weathering. They help to break rocks physically
