This is known as either a meteor (when it enters the atmosphere) or a meteorite (if it reaches the surface of the Earth).

Stones that enter the Earth's atmosphere fro outer space are called meteors. If any pieces of them reach the ground, those pieces are called meteorites.

Meteors, they are called meteorites after they have landed.

Yes. The 'stone' had pieces missing.

The actual rock, sand or other material is meteroid. When we can visibly see the path it traces as it burns up in the atmosphere, it is called a meteor. If it survives the atmosphere and does not burn up completely, striking the ground, it is called a meteorite.

Yes and no. Stone typically refers to larger pieces than rock does (e.g. building stone, grave stone, stone slab). Gravel is even smaller pieces. The materials are often the same.

The stone will drag air down with it as it enters the water.

The heat generated by friction due to 'rubbing' against the air at re-entry speed. This is the same effect that causes a stone or a grain of sand to burn when it enters the atmosphere and become visible as a 'shooting star'.

Sand is lots of tiny little pieces of stone and shell mixed up

it depends on the type of stone and how big the pieces are it will all be different

A so-called "shooting star" is closer than a comet. The "shooting star" is a grain of sand, a small stone, or a rock, that runs into the earth's atmosphere, and burns up on its way down to the surface. If a comet ever enters the atmosphere, we have a major problem.

rock is natural while stone is artificial.the rock found under the earths surface while the stone found anywhere on our earth's surface.
