1. What will chemical weathering do to the rate of physical weathering? (Points: 1) Decreases physical weathering Increases physical weathering No change—the processes are separate 2. What processes play the most important role in soil formation? (Points: 1) Evaporation and transpiration Weathering and biological activity Compaction and cementation 3. What process is the removal of materials? (Points: 1) Chemical weathering Physical weathering Erosion 4. What type of chemical weathering occurs when minerals dissolve in water? (Points: 1) Dissolution Hydrolysis Oxidation 5. What would you likely observe if you saw a debris flow? (Points: 1) Material moving as a unit down a slope. Material moving chaotically down a slope. Material moving slowly down a slope. 6. Are you likely to observe creep as it occurs? (Points: 1) Yes, it happens very rapidly. Yes, it happens very slowly.

(Points: 1) Rock fall Slump Rockslide Debris flow 8. What criteria are primarily used to classify mass wasting? (Points: 1) Land use and velocity of movement Volume of water and velocity of movement Type of material and type of movement Slope angle and volume of precipitation 9. Where do stream channels experience the most erosion? (Points: 1) On the inside of a bend where velocity is lower On the inside of a bend where the velocity is higher On the outside of a bend where the velocity is lower On the outside of a bend where the velocity is higher 10.
