Chemical weathering vviHoccur most rapidly when rocks are exposed to the

(1) hydrosphere and lithosphere (2) mesosphere and thermosphere (3) hydrosphere Ch'1datmosphere (4) lithosphere and atmosphere

As warm, moist air moves into a region, barometric pressure readings in the region will

generally

(1) decrease

(3) remain the same

lllcrease

( 1) Rocks A and C are made or larger particles than rock B.

(2)

The particles in rocks A and C are more fmnly cemented than those in rock B., The minerals in rocks A and C erode faster

them those in rock Bo

(4) Rocks A and C have not been exposed to

weathering as long as
