Why do rocks have to be solid to be rocks?
It is a question of definition. Rocks are defined to be composed of minerals (at least two minerals). Minerals are by definition solid because liquid materials cannot sustain a regular repeated and symmetrical crystal lattice. Therefore rocks have to be solid.

Thanks for the feedback!
clay and solid rock has porosity
A combination of increased temperature, a decrease in confining pressure or addition of volatiles can all act to cause rock to melt.
your mom is the answer
the lighter the rock is the easier it is able to flow. there is a rock that is so light it flows through the air like a feather. rock starts out as magma until it cools after …erupting from volcanos. but only igneous and metamorphic rocks.
See the City of Petra.
A rock is a cyrystalline because the particles are packed very close together in a straight line. that is why it is so hard. hope i helped
Rocks aren't always solid it can dissolve aswell as it is scientificlly proven. KAMAL HUSSAIN 8R FROM ROKEBY
yes it has a rocky core.
Always was.....always will be.....
the order sedimnets become solid rocks when water and air squeezed out from between the sedimnet layer. The sedimnets may also become solid rock when dissolved minerals in the… water cement the sedimnts together
No. it's made up of ice, rock and frozen gases!
because the rock is solid not liquid the rock became hard or strong. pls.follow on twitter rejinald hernandez
It depends on the particular rock and on the particular solid. Please restate the question, giving more specifics, such as what rock and what solid.
Mostly not. Some rock is present, but comets are characterized ybeing largely composed of ice.
