Sedimentary rock is formed when material such as sand,mud, calcium from diatoms and etc settle, most often from water. Over many eons, processes such as dessication and pressure form these sediments into rock.
Sandstone, shale and chalk are good examples of sedimentary rock.

  1. Sedimentary rocks are formed when sediment is deposited out of air, ice, wind, gravity, or water flows carrying the particles in suspension. This sediment is often formed when weathering and erosion break down a rock into loose material in a source area.

Can you tell me about anIgneous rock

Igneous rock is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava. Igneous rock may form with or without crystallization, either below the surface as intrusive (plutonic) rocks or on the surface as extrusive (volcanic) rocks.

What are the classification of rocks and please describe briefly each. thank you

Making up the majority of the Earth's crust, rock is usually defined as a mixture of common minerals.

Rocks can be hard or soft, as small as a grain or as large as a building. They have been an integral part of the history of mankind, first being used as tools for hunting and defense, and as a building materials to construct shelters and monuments.

Combined with the effects of tectonics, weathering and vegetation, rocks define the natural landscapes we see around us. The minerals and metals we find in rocks are essential to the prosperity and cultural splendor of human civilization.

There are many kinds of rock, and they can be classified in a number of ways. However, geologists classify rocks based on how the rocks were formed. The three classes are:
1) igneous rocks (formed directly from liquid rock),
2) metamorphic rocks (formed by direct alteration of existing rocks), and
3) sedimentary rocks (formed by eroded materials from other rocks).
