    1. volcanic eruption :A volcano is a vent in the earth's crust through which molten rock (magma), rock fragments, gases, and ashes are ejected from the earth's interior. A volcano is created when magma erupts onto the surface of the earth. 2. igneous rock: Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. 3. sediment: rock that consists of volcanic and sedimentary materials, which can be solid and detrital (occurring as a result of explosive volcanic eruptions) or chemical 4. sedimentary rock: Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water. 5. metamorphic rock:is a type of rock which has been changed by extreme heat and pressed. Its name is derived from the word morph, meaning change. The original rock gets heated (temperatures greater than 150 to 200 °C) and pressured (1500 bars). This causes profound physical and/or chemical change. 6. magma:hot fluid or semifluid material below or within the earth's crust from which lava and other igneous rock is formed by cooling

    you start from magma, go to igneous rock to sedimentary to metamorphic and back to magama

    ok volcano erupts it cools down and becomes igneous rock. The igneous rock becomes sediment due to weathering and erosion. the sediment is compacted and becomes sedimentary rock. due to heat and pressure, the sedimentary rock becomes metamorphic rock the metamorphic rock melts and becomes magma
