Which of these factors affects the rate of weathering?
There are not many factors which do not affect weathering in rocks. Two factors do not affect weathering are: Wind, sea and river erosion does not have any impact. No erosive processes cause weathering directly. Glaciers, however, may influence the climate of a region to the extent that more freeze-thaw weathering occurs The rock cycle does not affect weathering. This includes all actions and movements of rocks, though uplift and fault movement may cause more…
What are the factors that control the rate of chemical weathering and those that control the rate of physical weathering?
Temperature is another significant factor in chemical weathering because it influences the rate at which chemical interactions occur. Chemical reactions rates increase as temperatures increases. With all other factors being equal, the rate of chemical weathering reactions doubles with each 10C increase in temperature.
