What type of sedimentry rock that forms when sediments stick together?
Sedimentary rocks. The process of sediments sticking together is called "lithification". The process does not generate a unique sedimentary rock type.
Metamorphic rocks must first be weathered or eroded into sediments. Those sediments can then get compacted or cementated. Compaction occurs when the sediments are deeply buried, putting them under a lot of pressure which causes the sediments to squash together. Cementation occurs when newly formed minerals that are deposited by water act like a glue to stick the pieces of sediment together like a brick layer uses a bag of cement and sand.
Sedimentary rocks form from sediments. Sediments are loose materials such as rock fragments, mineral grains and bits of plant and animal remains that have been transported and deposited. Layer upon layer of sediments build up as more and more sediments are deposited in a place. Each upper layer presses down on the layer below it. The pressure causes the layers to stick together or become compacted and form solid rock. This happens when the sediments…
Dissolved minerals and particles of sediment stick together to form sedimentary rock in a process called?
The process that presses sediments together is compaction. Thick layers of sediment build up gradually over millions of years. These heavy layers press down on the layers beneath them. The weight of new layers further compacts the sediments, squeezing them tightly together. The layers often remain invisible in sedimentary rock.
Yes. Water is a polar molecule and forms hydrogen bonds with itself that helps to stick water molecules together. It can also form hydrogen bond with other polar organic molecules (with less nymber of carbon atoms) like alcohols, carboxylic acids etc., and is hence responsible for the solubility of these compounds in water.
