The diagram below shows the sequence of the processes that turn solid rock into sandstone. Which two processes best complete this diagram?
Melting and cooling
Erosion and compaction
Compaction and cementation
Evaporation and dissolving
Which of the following correctly completes the Sedimentary Rock Cycle?
A = Compaction, B = Erosion, C = Cementation
A = Erosion, B = Compaction, C = Cementation
A = Cementation, B = Compaction, C = Erosion
A = Erosion, B = Cementation, C = Compaction
Which diagram models the process of compaction leading to the formation of sedimentary rock? (5.7A)
Sediments are falling into the layers. What is NOT needed to make sedimentary rocks?
millions of years
layers of sediment
compaction and cementation
Which of the following is the correct order of sedimentary rock formation?
weathering, deposition, compaction, erosion, cementation
weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction, cementation
weathering, erosion, deposition, cementation, compaction
deposition, compaction, cementation, weathering, erosion
Which best describes deposition?
sediment pressing together
dissolved minerals crystallize and glue particles together
particles settle as loosely packed sediment
running water or wind carry away fragments of rock
