Sedimentary rock formation occurs when igneous, metamorphic, or other sedimentary rocks are exposed to the unyielding forces of nature found on the Earth's surface. The formation of sedimentary rock occurs by several processes over millions of years. Rock sediments are carried to other places by the wind, running water, and gravity. As these forces lose energy settling takes place. The sediments settle out of the air or water in rock particles graded by size with heavier pieces settle out first.
