Weathering is defined as the gradual breaking down or disintegation of rocks by either physical (mechanical) or chemical process.

(i) physical or mechanical weathering
(ii) chemical weathering
(iii) biology weathering

Physical Weathering:
(i)wind: The force of wind carries along small pieces of soil which hit against the surface of parent rock causing it to disintegrate into smaller soil particles.
(ii)water: Moving water or rain has a grinding effect against the surface of the parent rock. This causes the rock to disintegrate into smaller soil particles.
(iii)man activities: moving activities or rain has a grinding effect against the surface of the parent rock. This causes the rock to disintegrate into smaller soil particles.

Chemical Weathering:
(i)hydration: Soluble minerals in the rocks absorb water and expand weakening rock structures The rock becomes porous and eventually disintegrates into smaller soil particles
(ii)hydrolysis: Water reacting with soluble minerals in the rocks loosening and breaking them into smaller particles.
(iii)Oxidation: Reaction of rock minerals with oxygen to form oxide compounds which easily break up.
