WEATHERING

There are 7 agents of weathering.

1.animals

2.plants

3.wind

4.water

5.acid rain

6.rust

7.ice

Erosion

There are 5 agent of erosion

1.wind

2. water

3.gravity

4.ice

5.human

same and differences

Weathering and erosion are similar because they both happen with wind and water, they both help change the environment and earth surface. Weathering and erosion are different because weathering breaks the rocks down, erosion moves it to a whole other place, weathering has different agents than erosion, for example, gravity is for erosion and acid rain is for weathering.

how can weathering and erosion change the earth surface?

It can change the earth surface by when there is a cracks in something and when water,wind,plants,acid rain,ice,rust,animals and sometimes human can make that crack even bigger and the peices that crack off, erosion moves it with wind,water, ice,gravity and somtimes human!                   lets review below.
