Weathering is defined as the gradual breaking down or disintegration of rocks by either physical or chemical process
(i) Climate :Climate elements like temperature and rainfall are the major factors affecting Weathering. While physical Weathering is aided by temperature and water to break down rocks, chemical Weathering is aided by water and other gases in the atmosphere
(ii)Type of rocks : rocks are made up of different minerals while some are resistant to weathering others are not simply because of their differences in structure, composition and sizes of the rocks
(iii) Relief: very steep slopes like high mountains and courage weathering especially Frost action why gentle and even slopes favour chemical Weathering
Exfoliation is a process in which large flat or curved sheets of rock fracture and are detached from the outcrop due to pressure release: As erosion removes the overburden from a rock that formed at high pressure deep in the Earth´s crust, it allows the rock to expand, thus resulting in cracks and fractures along sheet.
