What is the rock cycle? The Earth is a giant recycling machine. Water in rivers,
lakes, seas and oceans evaporates into the atmosphere, where it can form water
vapour and clouds. It eventually falls back to Earth as rain, and the water cycle
begins all over again. Rocks change in a similar way, but the rock cycle takes
thousands of years. In the basic rock cycle, igneous rock forms when molten
magma cools and turns solid. Through weathering and erosion, particles of
igneous rock are ...

The second method consists principally of using physico-chemical reactions
which selectively destroy the bonding of the rock so as to observe and
quantitatively measure this destruction. This is in effect a form of weathering the
way in which nature destroys rocks, and is the approach that will be pursued here
. Some introductory remarks about possible reactions shall be made first, and
followed by some newer experimental observations involving the systems water
with sandstone and ...
