There are two types of weathering - physical and chemical. Physical Weathering Physical weathering takes place when water and ice break rocks down into smaller pieces. This happens by freezing and thawing. Physical weathering only changes the size of the rock. Plant roots and burrowing animals can also cause physical weathering. Chemical Weathering Chemical weathering not only changes the size of rocks but also causes them to change into different materials. During chemical weathering the rocks are broken down by the actions of chemicals in the air or water. granite granite sand/silt/clay water rusting (oxidation) chemical leaching
