What do rock's do to the earth?
Rocks help mountains, and volcano's. How? They go on top of the surface and protect many things.
A metamorphic rock is a result of a transformation of a pre-existing rock. The original rock is subjected to very high heat and pressure, which cause obvious physical and/or chemical changes. Examples of these rock types include marble, slate, gneiss, schist.
Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition and subsequent cementation of that material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water. Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause mineral and organic particles to settle in place.
Igneous rock , is one of the three main rock types.Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava.
