Asked in Science
Why does permeable rock break down more quickly than not permeable rock?
PERMEABLE means:that a material is full of tiny, connected air spaces that allow water to seep through it. The spaces increase the suface area of the rock. ANSWER:because since water goes through the air pockets it erodes the rock quicker than less permeable rock because it has less air pockets. ...
