Sedimentary Rock Classification

1. 
Sedimentary rocks can be classified as clastic, chemical, or organic.
  1. True
  2. False
2. 
Chemical sedimentary rock forms when
  1. mechanical weathering occurs.
  2. there is an accumulation of plant or animal debris.
  3. dissolved materials precipitate from a solution.
  4. molten material cools and hardens.
3. 
Clastic sedimentary rocks form when
  1. there is an accumulation of plant or animal debris.
  2. dissolved minerals precipitate from a solution.
  3. mechanical weathering occurs.
  4. molten material cools and hardens.
4. 
An organic sedimentary rock forms when
  1. dissolved materials precipitate from a solution.
  2. there is an accumulation of plant or animal debris.
  3. mechanical weathering occurs.
  4. molten material cools and hardens.
