Sedimentary rock can become metamorphic rock under intense heat and pressure. The heat and pressure do not change the rock's chemical composition, but do change its physical properties like hardness, texture, and structure.
sedimentary rocks change with heat and pressure and become metamorphic rock then rocks melt into magma.
Both sedimentary and igneous
It is possible when a sedimentary r. can become a metamorphic r. because when metamorphic rocks get charged by heat and pressure, the metamorphic rock goes through a complete change which causes the metamorphic rock to become a sedimentary r.
No it cant be change into a sedimentary rock. it can become a metamorphic though
Heat and pressure changes both igneous rocks sedimentary rocks into metamorphic rocks.
heat and pressure= metamorphic rocks then metamorphic rocks melt and become magma
Sedimentary and Igneous rocks are not metamorphic rocks. Metamorphic rocks however are igneous or sedimentary rocks that have undertaken metamorphism (In extreme heat and/or pressure the minerals are forced to recrystalize) and become metamorphic rocks. If the heat/pressure causes the rock to melt into liquid rock than it is no longer metamorphi, it is igneous. Hope this helps :)
Heating and pressure
Yes,so can sedimentary rocks and even other metamorphic rocks.
The process of sedimentary rocks changing to metamorphic rocks is called metamorphosis. But I don't know about the change of metamorphic rocks into sedimentary rocks.
Metamorphic. Heat and Pressure causes rocks to become metamorphic. Processes like weathering, erosion, deposition, compacting and cementing cause rocks to become sedimentary.
by heat and very great pressure
No. It's the Metamorphic rocks that melt and become magma.
Sedimentary rocks get turned in to metamorphic rocks by heat and pressure. They get heated by magma and convection currents, which causes the rock to change.
Igneous rocks are a "finished product". They do not become sedimentary rock - though sedimentary rocks, with heat and pressure can become metamorphic rocks.
the igneous rocks change and start to become metamorphic rocks
lava and/or magma cools and forms igneous rocks. igneous rocks go through weather and erosion which forms sediments. these sediments are collected and compacted. this causes sedimentary rocks. the sedimentary rocks go through weather and erosion as well as being exposed to heat and pressure. this causes metamorphic rocks. metamorphic rocks go through heat and pressure and then they melt and become lava or magma again. this is called the rock cycle.
Yes. A number of metamorphic rocks are formed from igneous and other metamorphic rocks. In fact there is a sequence of metamorphic rocks that starts with the sedimentary rock, shale. Shale metamorphoses into slate, which in turn can become phyllite, which can become schist, which can become gneiss. Gneiss can also form by metamorphosing granite, which is an igneous rock.
It's the other way around: How does a sedimentary rocks turn into a metamorphic rocks? The answers is: "By heat and pressure". Metamorphic rocks never turn into sedimentary rocks.
Sedimentary rocks can be eroded into sediments and form sedimentary rocks again, they can melt and become igneous rocks, and they can undergo extreme heat and pressure and become metamorphic rocks.
Metamorphic rocks can form from both igneous and sedimentary rocks
Indirectly, and only by weathering and erosion into sediment that may become deposited to become a sedimentary rock in future.
