chemical changes
Chemical changes occur when a substance combines with another to form a new substance, called synthesis or, alternatively, decomposes into two or more different substances
rock cycle
The rock cycle is a basic concept in geology that describes the time-consuming transitions through geologic time among the three main rock types: sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous
work
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force
metabolic pathway
In biochemistry, a metabolic pathway is a linked series of chemical reactions occurring within a cell
Convection
Convection is the movement of groups of molecules within fluids such as liquids or gases, and within rheids
igneous rock
Igneous rock is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic
