How long does it take for a metaphoric rock to form?
Metamorphic rocks takes from as much as thousands of years to just a few minutes to form depending on the type of metamorphism involved and the range of existing physical properties like temperature and pressure involved.
Surface sediments take millions of years to compress into rocks. Heat within the earth can make metaphoric rocks as the liquidy material cools. Sandstone is where you'd find most fossils which form as rock compresses. It also has the easiest erosion. All rocks on earth's surface erode. Wind and water are the 2 most common forces of erosion. A tiny crack in a rock is enough to split it. Rains can cause huge boulders to…
Why does it take thousands or millions of years to create sedimentary rocks when it may only take minutes to form igneous?
well it depends of what the question it asking if it is asking how long does the rock actually get to another then the answer is impossible but if it's asking a different one like how long does it take for your hand to get to another rock then it depends one how fast your hand is. But iw oyulod say 3 secends.
