Rock

  • Rock is naturally occurring solid of one or more minerals or organic materials

  • Sediments are all rocks that have been weathered and eroded into piece (scientific)

  • Fragments (not scientific)

  • Magma—hot fluid materials which are liquid rocks under the earth’s surface


Igneous

Igneous

  • Extrusive: has tiny small wholes or small crystals

    • Formed from cooling magma above earth’s surface

  • Intrusive: large crystals are formed

    • Underneath the earth’s surface

    • Malfic– igneous rocks that are dark in color due to their composition—what minerals make it up

    • Felsic—igneous rocks that are light in color due to their composition


Sedimentary

Sedimentary

  • Weathering and erosions of all rocks. The creation strata (layers) formed through a process stratification

  • Erosion—moving of sediments

  • Clastic: sediments that have been cemented together

  • Chemical: dissolving salt—usually can see strata (Layers)

  • Organic: sediments connects by fossils


Metamorphic

Metamorphic

  • Foliated: minerals are arranged in bands or plains

  • Nonfoliated: minerals are not arranged in bands or plains

  • 50c to 1000c

  • Contact: near magma

  • Regional: earthquakes or rocks moves
