Mechanical weathering. or Physical Weathering.
The best known example of physical weathering is erosion. Erosion can happen on rocks and on river banks for example.
An example of physical weathering is animal actions and weathering is the process that breaks down rock and other substances of Earth's surface.
No. It is an example of physical (mechanical) weathering.
There are two types of weathering that occur: chemical weathering and physical weathering. One example of physical weathering is crushing a rock with a hammer. An example of chemical weathering is acid rain where the material is chemically broken down because of the rain's acidity.
Running water is an example of mechanical (or physical) weathering.
it is an example of physical weathering hope this helps
No weathering is not the same as physical weathering.Kayla
Soil particles carried by the wind.
Gravity is a physical phenomenon.
An example of physical weathering would be sand wearing down a rock or ice wedging where water seeps into a crack, freezes in the winter, then expands it over and over.
Water freezing in the cracks of rock is an example of Mechanical Weathering also referred to as Physical Weathering.
Decreases physical weathering
The chemical weathering is caused by chemical reactios, for example with water, acids etc. The physical weathering is produced by mechanical causes, freezing, heating etc.
Abrasion is a Physical /Mechanical weathering .Abrasion is the process of wearing down or rubbing away.
Like plant-roots,wind,and temperature.
Physical weathering is a term used in science that refers to the geological process of rocks breaking apart without changing their chemical composition.
how are physical weathering and chenical weathering alike and different
They are the same thing. Mechanical weather would be a subset of physical weathering. Physical weathering would be anything that reduces the physical composition of something (lets take a rock as our example.) mechanical weathering would be the result of an object of mass either abrading or cleaving the rock: sandpaper and sledge-hammers. Chemical weathering would be something like acid Photo-weathering would be from UV light
physical weathering is weathering that you can reverse and chemical weathering is where you can' reverse it.
it is physical weathering. it is also called mechanical weathering
physical weathering is about rocks and chemical weathering is about is about chemicals hahah lol
it is physical weathering
They move the rocks and then they drop them and they break. :)
