Stalactites grow downwards
Stalactites and stalagmites are classified as precipitates, a type of chemical sedimentary rock. Yes, rocks can grow like stalactites and stalagmites.
you find a stalactites in the east side of the cave.
Stalactites grow .005 inches per year. It will take 200 years to grow one inch. stalagmites/stalagtites grow at .13 mm or .005 inches per year, and up to 3 mm or .12 inches per year. That would be about 100 yrs to grow 1cm on average
No. Stalactites hang from the cave ceiling. Stalagmites grow from the floor toward the cave ceiling.
yes or no
They grow from the roof of the cave, downward.
No, stalagmites grow from the ground up. Stalactites hang from the roofs of caves.
Stalactites grow down from the ceiling. Stalagmites grow up- from the floor. Think of the "c" and "g".
Stalactites grow downwards (hang down); Stalagmites grow upwards. How to remember the difference: Stalactites "hold tight" to the ceiling.
Stalactites refers to the formations that grow downward in a cave.
no, stalactites grow from the ceiling, like an iceicle. stalagmites grow from the ground and stand up. A way to remember it is stalactite has a "c" for ceiling and stalagmite has a "g" for ground no, stalactites grow from the ceiling, like an iceicle. stalagmites grow from the ground and stand up. A way to remember it is stalactite has a "c" for ceiling and stalagmite has a "g" for ground
No those are stalagmites. stalactites grow from calcite (or mineral) deposits from water dripping from cracks from the ceiling. :) hope this helped
When they join they become a pillar or a column.
From which part of a cave do stalactites grow
Formations that grow downwards from the top of the cave are called stalactites.
Stalactites refers to the formations that grow downward from the top of the cave.
Stalactites are found hanging from the roof of a cave, as opposed to stalagmites, which grow up from the floor. Remembering the difference is easy - stalactites are "tite" to the ceiling!
No. Only living organisms have cells. Although stalagmites and stalactites appear to grow, it is not due to the reproduction of cells or living organisms. Stalagmites and stalactites are composed of atoms which are connected into molecules. They are made of the same things as any other rock.
They usually grow from limestone. Mostly in caves.
Stalagmites. This word has the letter "G" in it so we remember that stalagmites grow up from the ground. On the other hand,the word "Stalactites" has the letter "C" in it, so we remember that stalactites grow down from the "ceiling" or roof of the cave.
