How are hard candy and sediment rocks different


Hard candy and sedimentary rocks differ in composition, formation processes, physical appearance, and properties.

  • Q: What are hard candies? A: Hard candies are candies that are made with a high concentration of sugar and water, and are boiled to create a hard, glass-like candy.
  • Q: What are sedimentary rocks? A: Sedimentary rocks are rocks that are formed from the accumulation of sediment, typically in layers over time.
  • A: Hard candy and sedimentary rocks are different in composition and formation processes. Hard candy is made through boiling sugar and water, while sedimentary rocks are formed over time through pressure and the accumulation of sediment. They are also very different in physical appearance and properties.
