The rock cycle explains how each type of rock is formed :)
- The process of WEATHERING (the distintegration of rocks by by weather) creates lose sediment which can then be easily transported by rivers.
- The sediment is deposited in the oceans and eventually builds up. This is then compacted until it forms SEDIMENTARY ROCK.
- This is then changed to METAMORPHIC ROCK due to intense heat and pressure.
- The rock is then melted…
