Cause of changes in rocks.

 Stress
Stress and Rocks
– when rock layers
change their shape due to stress.
 Deformation
Two types:
What is deformation?
 Elastic-
 Return to their original shape after
the stress is removed.
What is deformation?
 Plastic-
 Once stress is removed, the deformation
The Sinai Massif
 Once
this limit is passed, the rock will
break – fault is produced.
Types of Stress
 Tension
 Shearing
What is compression?
– type of stress that
occurs when an object is squeezed.
