What is mechanical weathering and how does it work?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mechanical weathering is the process of breaking down rocks through physical means. This is in contrast to chemical weathering which is caused by chemical reactions. Examples of mechanical weathering include river stones being rounded and smoothed by rolling along the river bed and the action of wind in the shaping of buttes and other desert rock structures.
