## Japs 3 years ago I need help!!! i no this is math but i need help on my science because i cant get help on the science link. 10. Starting and ending with igneous rock, describe the processes involved in the rock cycle.

1. Japs

please anyone!

2. Japs

anyone like @vmisono or @kelly226

3. kelly226

A diagram of the rock cycle. Legend: 1 = magma; 2 = crystallization (freezing of rock); 3 = igneous rocks; 4 = erosion; 5 = sedimentation; 6 = sediments & sedimentary rocks; 7 = tectonic burial and metamorphism; 8 = metamorphic rocks; 9 = melting.

4. kelly226

does that hlp at all?

5. Japs

is that the cycle?

6. kelly226

yup;) the picture is

7. kelly226

u can also go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_cycle

8. kelly226

and its the same thing but bigger;)

9. Japs

so how do i right it on my paper with out it being copied.

10. kelly226

oh! do u have to decribe every process? like step by step?

11. kelly226

like, how diff. types of rock are made?

12. Japs

yea.. with the starting and the ending of igneous rock

13. kelly226

ok.. hold on;)

14. Japs

ok. (:

15. Japs

can you put it in yr own words? pleasE?

16. kelly226

http://geography.about.com/cs/physicalgeography1/a/rockcycle.htm go here.. it tells you lots;)

17. kelly226

ok.. hold on;)

18. Japs

Thank you soooo! MUCH!

The rock cycle is a continuous process, first, rocks are pushed up by tectonic forces, and eroded by wind,rain, snow, ice etc.. The eroded rocks get around with wind or rivers, until they are deposited, and turning into layers. Other eroded rocks can bury these layers until heat and pressure change the under layers to make a metamorphic rock. More eroded rocks can squeeze and squish the layers into sedimentary rocks. Rocks can also be sunk down into the lower layers of the earth with plate tectonic processes. Buried rocks can also melt and recrystallize into igneous rocks. Metamorphic, sedimentary, and igneous rocks can then be pushed up by tectonic forces, starting the rock cycle all over again.;)

20. Japs

is that in your own words?

21. kelly226

yeah;) i got it from a website and changed some of the words so it doesnt sound uber professional;)

22. kelly226

u can change more though..if u want:)

23. Japs

thank you soooo! much!

24. kelly226

np;)
