Transcript of The Rock Cycle

The Rock Cycle
Igneous Rocks
Sedimentary
Metamorphic Rocks
Metamorphic rocks arise from the transformation of existing rock types, in a process called metamorphism, which means "change in form".
Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water.
Igneous rocks are formed when magma deep within Earths crust and upper mantle cools or solidifies.
Intrusive igneous rocks form within Earth's crust and only appear when the rocks above erode.
Extrusive rocks are formed when magma (lava) erupts from a volcano then cools on the surface.

Now let's see how these rocks are used.
There are several different ways that people use sedimentary rocks. The chalk used in classrooms around the world is a type of sedimentary rock. Limestone is a sedimentary rock that is used in concrete, building stones, antacids, soil conditioner, and steel making. Coal is another sedimentary rock which is used to produce heat and electricity. Shale is used to make brick. Sandstone is used in construction and glass production.
Sedimentary rocks common use
LIMESTONE
CHALK
Coal
Granite is a very hard rock. As with many of the other rocks we have seen it can be used for buildings and for long lasting monuments. It is also often used for kerb stones, and countertops. Some people use pumice stones to scrub stains which won't come off with soap and water. It can also be ground down and used in polish or as lava soap.
Igneous rocks common uses
Granite
Pumice
Metamorphic rock common uses
Marble is a metamorphic rock that is used to make floor tiles, counter tops and it is carved into

statues
and was used extensively in the building of the Roman Colosseum and other historic buildings. Slate is another metamorphic rock that is used in buildings for

floor

and roofing tiles, and it was once used for blackboards. Quartzite is used as a source of silica; other forms of metamorphic rocks are useful as building components, monuments,
counter tops
, and facings.

Foliation-the set of layers visible in
many metamorphic rocks as a result
of flattening or stretching in mineral
grains during metamorphism.
Non-foliation-Does not show the layers such as a foliated rock would show as a result of flattening.

minerals in it are:
Quartz &
Muscovite
Minerals in marble are:
calcite
What are the minerals in this?
There are a huge array of minerals
(or anything in the area its in)
conglomerate could be.
What is in Limestone?
It is calcite.
Let's see what minerals
are in obsidian.
Well there are no minerals in obsidian.
It cools to quickly to generate minerals.
What
is
in
Granite?
Both plagioclase and alkali feldspars along with quartz
can be found in marble.
