Shaking rocks inside sugar cubes

Rocks become smoother as rough and jagged edges break off. Students run a model of this process by shaking sugar cubes and gravel together in a plastic container. The sugar cubes become smoother as their edges break off when they collide in the container. Materials Needed For each student: 2-3 sugar cubes 2-3 pieces of gravel

    Mar 28, 2018 Hypoglycaemia (low Blood Sugar) In Diabetes. Hypoglycaemia is a condition where the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood drops below a certain point – usually around 4.0mmol/l. This causes a number of symptoms such as dizziness, sweating, shaking and palpitations, that usually go away 10 to 15 minutes after eating sugar

    No rock on Earth’s surface is hard enough to resist weathering. Weathering and erosion constantly change the Earth. Weathering wears away exposed surfaces over time. The process of weathering smoothes sharp, rough areas on rocks. Weathering also helps create soil as tiny bits of weathered rock mix with plant and animal remains
