Chapter 14 Quiz Review
Question #1 Q: What is mechanical weathering?A: Process by which rocks are broken down into smaller pieces by physical means.
Question # 2 Q: Name at least 3 common agents of mechanical weathering. A: ice, plants, animals, gravity, running water, and wind.
Question # 3 Q: What is abrasion?A: The grinding & wearing away of rock surfaces through the mechanical action of other rock or sand particles.
Question # 4 Q: What is chemical weathering?A: Process by which rocks break down as a result of chemical reactions.
Question # 5 Q: What are the 5 types of chemical weathering?A: Oxidation, hydrolysis, carbonation, organic acids, & acid precipitation.
Question # 6 Q: What is produced when carbonic acid reacts with calcite ( a major component of limestone)? A: Calcium bicarbonate
Question # 7 Q: What are the 4 agents that affect the rate of weathering? A: Rock composition, surface area, climate, & topography.
Question # 8 Q: What weathering agents do lichens & mosses produce?A: Organic acids
Question # 9 Q: If you increase the amount of surface area, how does that affect weathering? A: The larger the surface area, the higher the rate of weathering.
Question # 10 Q: Sedimentary rocks that contain this weather most quickly? A: Rocks that contain calcite.
Question # 11 Q: What type of climate has the fastest rate of weathering? A: Alternating hot and cold climates.
Question # 12 Q: What is crop rotation?A: Farmers plant one type of crop one year and a different type of crop the next. Crop rotation stops erosion in its early stages.
Question # 13 Q: What are the 3 major types of landforms that are a result of weathering & erosion? A: Mountains, plains, plateaus
Question # 14 Q: Name at least 2 of the 4 soil conservation methods.A: contour plowing, strip-cropping, terracing, crop rotation.
Question # 15 Q: How does gravity affect erosion?A: Creates mass movements such as creep, mudflows, slump, landslides, & solifluction.
Question # 16 Q: What are soil horizons?A: A horizontal layer of soil that is clearly different from the layers above and below it.
Question # 17 Q: What is oxidation?A: Process by which elements combine with oxygen. (Type of chemical weathering).
Question # 18 Q: What is differential weathering?A: The process by which softer, less weather resistant rocks wear away at a faster rate than harder, more weather resistant rocks do.
Question # 19 Q: Formations of potholes in streets during severe winters is what type of weathering? A: Mechanical
Question # 20 Q: Halite in rocks dissolving in water is an example of what type of weathering? A: Chemical
Question # 21 Q: What is erosion?A: The products of weathering are transported.
Question # 22 Q: What are the four agents of erosion?A: Gravity, wind, glaciers, and water.
Question # 23 Q: What is a loose mixture of rock fragments and organic material that can support growth of vegetation called? A: Soil
Question # 24 Q: Which would you expect to have a faster rate of weathering, mountainsides or flat land. A: Mountainsides
Question # 25 Q: What is sheet erosion?A: Process by which water flows over a layer of soil and removes the topsoil.
WEATHERING AND EROSION
Soil and Topography Soils at the top and bottom of the slope tend to be thicker than the soil on the slope itself.
Weathering, Erosion, Deposition, and Soil
Chapter 12: Weathering.
Weathering: The natural process by which atmosphere and environmental forces, such as wind, rain, and temperature changes, disintegrate and decompose.

Rocks, Weathering, and Soil Information
Weathering and Erosion Weathering means the process of breaking down rocks and other substances at Earth’s surface.
The Earth’s Changing Surface
What Is Weathering? Weathering is the process that breaks down rocks into smaller and smaller pieces Weathering wears down mountains and breaks down statues.
