Ivy causes weathering because when it grows on anything it is taking the nutrients out of it even brick walls.

factors that cause weathering are erosion and water

Moving water is the biggest cause of weathering and erosion.

water,acids, and air can all cause chemical weathering. :)

Wind, water and ice are three forces that cause weathering.

Carbon dioxide dissolved in water is a cause of chemical weathering.

Wind and water are the major causes of weathering and erosion.

Erosion does not cause weathering. Erosion is a TYPE of weathering in which surface soil and rock are worn away through the action of glaciers, water, and wind.

Weathering are the various mechanical and chemical processes that cause the breakdown of rocks, soil and minerals. The forces that cause weathering are water, the atmosphere and the Earth's animal and plant life.

There are three things that cause weathering in rocks. These factors are wind, plants, and water. Wind and water make the rock dissolve away. Plants can cause the rocks to crack.

An example that answers this question is rain water cause for weathering of by the chemically when it enters the atmosphere

User Avatar

the constant movement of water and pressure onto the rocks causes the weathering

Rain water may cause for weathering of by the chemically(when it enters into the atmosphere some of gases are reacted with rain water and form acids) and mechanically(due to velocity of rain water).

Weathering and erosion (which are synonyms) can cause minerals to leach into the water supply - for example, erosion of a rock which contains bauxite will cause aluminum to be present in the downstream water.

Themost important cause is water. Water weathers rock by dissolving it.

Water is a major component in weathering process. Its essential for all forms of disintegration either Mechanical/Physical, Biological or Chemical. Water aids in physical weathering through alternating wetting and drying of rocks thereby leading to breaking down of the rock. It helps in chemical weathering through dissolution of chemicals in rocks such as limestone. Water is a cause of both chemical and physical weathering.

Water affects weathering by running over rocks and making rocks smooth. If water gets into a crevice, the water can cause the rock to braek if it were to freeze.

Water can get into fractures/joints/pores of rock, freeze, and then expand, weathering the rock.

by the coldness of freezing and the warmness of thawing
