Which type of rock is formed from the cementing of small pieces of older rocks shells soil or dead plants and animals

sedimentary

Which type of physical weathering occurs when water seeps into cracks of rocks and freezes

It is a form of weathering known as frost wedging.

What type of waves are produced by earthquakes and explosions

seismic waves

Which scientist studies weather and clouds

meteorologist

Which term describes the droplets of water that condense on aerosols in the sky

You may be thinking about the term nucleation or coalescence. Creation of liquid droplets around aerosol particles is called nucleation. The aerosol particles themselves are known as seeds, while the water that form around them are known as droplets. When referring specifically to cloud formation in the atmosphere, the nucleation process is known as coalescence and the seeds can be called cloud condensation nuclei.

These seeds can be natural, as in smaller water/ice particles or synthetic chemicals used for cloud seeding, including silver iodide and dry ice.
