Does the rate of chemical weathering increase or stay the same when a rock becomes more mechanical weathered?

The rate of chemical weathering increases when a rock becomes more mechanically weathered, also called abrasion.


How do animals affect mechanical weathering?

Animals cause mechanical weathering by making rocks more exposed to the elements through digging, nesting, clawing, and burrowing. The additional exposure causes rocks to weather at a faster rate as ice and water can now penetrate the rock and cause chemical weathering as well.
