This is chemical weathering, in other words


Oxidation is a chemical process when oxygen in the air reacts with things which are made of reactive materials. Weathering takes place when atmospheric elements wear away or change the appearance or texture of rocks and other things. Oxidation is a type of chemical weathering, that is why it causes things to weather or wear away.
