Weathering breaks igneous rock into sediments such as pebbles and sand. These small pieces are compacted and cemented under pressure into sedimentary rock. Under great heat and pressure inside the Earth’s crust, igneous and sedimentary rocks are changed into metamorphic rocks. These rocks are brought to the earth’s surface where they are weathered again into sediments to become sedimentary rocks.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
