6.1 clastic sedimentary rocks physical geology

Most clasts that are smaller than sand size (<1/16 mm) are made of clay minerals. Most clasts larger than sand size (>2 mm) are actual fragments of rock, and commonly these might be fine-grained rock like basalt or andesite, or if they are bigger, coarse-grained rock like granite or gneiss

Jun 20, 2019 · Sand, as you may guess, forms sandstone. Sandstone is medium-grained, meaning its fragments are between 1/16 mm and 2 mm. Silt forms fine-grained siltstone, with fragments between 1/16 mm and 1/256 mm. Anything less than 1/256 mm results in either claystone or mudstone

Nov 30, 2016 · Coarse sand = diameter 2-0.2mm Fine sand = diameter 0.2-0.02mm Silt = diameter 0.02-0.002mm Clay = diameter less than 0.002mm. Note how the clay particles are much smaller than the sand particles – this is important as it means the total surface area of a clay soil is much greater and so the capacity to hold water is also much greater

Sand mainly composes of silica. In terms of particle size according to the geologists, sand particles range in diameter from 0.0625 mm (or 1⁄16 mm) to 2 mm. An individual particle in this range size is termed as a sand grain. It is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles
