The rock cycle

  1. 1. The Rock Cycle
  2. 2. What is the rock cycle? <ul><li>It is a model that shows how closely related all the different types of rocks are to each other. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The amount of rock material on earth remains the same </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>However, the rocks go through many different transformations </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. How does the rock cycle work? <ul><li>Form sedimentary rocks </li></ul><ul><li>Igneous is known to be the primary (parent) rock on earth. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As the rocks come into contact with weathering and erosion , pieces break off </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These pieces get transported and put together to form sedimentary rocks </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Form into Metamorphic Rocks <ul><li>If these rocks or the igneous rocks are exposed to huge amounts pressure and heat they form into metamorphic rocks </li></ul>
  5. 5. Form into Igneous rocks <ul><li>If the metamorphic rocks or the sedimentary rocks melt and form into magma then they create igneous rocks </li></ul>
  6. 6. General Rule !!! <ul><li>ANY TYPE OF ROCK CAN FORM INTO ANY OTHER TYPE OF ROCK AS LONG AS IT IS SUNJECT TO THE RIGHT CONDITIONS </li></ul>
  7. 7. Proof #1 of the rock Cycle <ul><li>When we look at a sedimentary rock carefully </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We see particles of all types of rock and from all over the place </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Proof of the Rock Cycle <ul><li>When we look at other types of rocks we can see that the rocks have gone through many different changes. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How are the rocks used? <ul><li>Igneous </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Granite for example is used to build monuments etc…… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Might be crushed and used for roads etc… </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Sedimentary </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Especially sandstone is commonly used in construction and building houses and buildings </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Foliated metamorphic rocks </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be cut and used for roofing </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Non-foliated (like marble0 is great for making statues etc… </li></ul>
  12. 12. Resource Conservation
  13. 13. Introduction <ul><li>The Earth’s population is growing by the second </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Therefore the demand for energy and products has rapidly increased </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the problem and solution ? </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Fossil Fuels <ul><li>Right now fossil fuels is the primary source of our energy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fossil fuels include </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Coal </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Oil </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Natural gas </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They are non-renewable sources because we use too much too quickly </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. What can we do? <ul><li>We can use alternative energy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hydropower (water powered) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wave </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nuclear energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These do less harm to the environment than fossil fuels </li></ul></ul>
  16. 16. The 4 Rs <ul><li>Reduce </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We can reduce how much fule we use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Reuse </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We what we used already </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Recycle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use materials that can be recycled into new </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Paper into recyclable paper </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Reclaim </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We can collect and use what has already been thrown out </li></ul></ul>
