what similarities do chemical and mechanical weathering have?

    They are similar in that they both often lead to erosion and can be responsible for devastating landslides.  They both break down rock on our earth’s surface, however the method is different.

    Both types of weathering break away all different types of rock on the surface.  Their end result is generally the same (erosion) but the main difference is mechanical weathering refers to a physical change (like water turning to ice) and chemical refers to a chemical reaction (such as limestone dissolving in acidic water).
