Weathering: breaking down
Erosion: sediment moving



Basically, weathering is when sediment wears away. Erosion is when that sediment is moved by wind or water to another place.

Please let me know if you need any further help, I learned about this last year so I can help! :D

Here is a similar question where they answered it better than I did: How are erosion and deposition due to weathering related?
