Among other things, yes, mineral composition is a common part of geology.
A. A geologist would study the composition of minerals.
geology= study of rocks,minerals and earth. the answer to your question is A. the composition of a mineral.
Which would usually be studied by a geologist?
I assume that would fall under something a geologist would study
That's a hard question to answer, since a Geologist is someone who researches rocks, minerals, and the composition of the earth, what would you consider the opposite of a geologist. Possibly someone who studies the stars such as an astronomer.
It would depend on their field of endeavor. See the related question.
Minerals are basically chemicals in a solid form.A2. Part of the definition of a mineral is that it has a known chemical composition. If its composition were variable, it would not qualify under the definition.
The correct term would be a mineral.
Felsic igneous rock with exact same composition of granite, just tiny crystals. granite= orhtoclase, quartz, biotite.
Geology is the general term given to the study of the planet earth. Geology has many branches and Petrology is the branch of geology that studies the origin, composition, distribution and structure of rocks, a Geologist specialising in that area would call themselves a "Petrologist".
A rocks melting point at surface pressures would depend on its mineral composition. Every mineral has a different melting point, and rocks are composed of a variety of minerals.
A mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic solid with a crystal structure and a definite chemical composition.Make sure you don't put:A Mineral is a sparkly rock
A mineral is defined as "a naturally occurring, homogeneous solid with a defined chemical composition, and a highly ordered crystal matrix." Thus, diamond (carbon) might make it into the mineral class by this definition, but mercury or water would not.
it would be a mineral because it natural occurs but some can be organic because some are made with carbon like diamond
Definitely, the mineral composition and content of an igneous rock would classify them. If the predominant minerals are Felsic then the igneous rock would be a light colored one such as Granite but if its Mafic then the igneous rock would be dark colored like Basalt.
No, indeed the contrary. A mineral is defined as a "naturally occurring, homogeneous solid with a defined chemical composition and a highly ordered atomic arrangement." So, a material such as tungsten carbide which is only man-made (as far as I know), would not be classified as a mineral.
If it's also a solid, it would be called a mineral.
Mineral composition of the rock, and the temperature and pressure it is exposed to, would determine the melting point of a particular rock.
You would be a Geologist,
I do not know the exact/possible chemical composition. It is mainly composed of carbon (which means it needs to include oxygen) so the composition would include C and O.
An example of a composition would be the Constitution.
Penguins and scientist/geologist to study it.
They would use a rock hammer.
The color of a mineral may vary if it has impurities. For example, calcite may come in many different colors, but its chemical composition is still CaCO3. For many minerals, color can not be used as a diagnostic property. However, even if a mineral has several different colors, its streak will always be the same.
