How is weathering important to the processes of erosion, transportation, and deposition?

To determine

The way in which weathering is important to the processes of erosion, transportation, and deposition.

Explanation

Weathering can be defined as the process that involves the breakdown of rock materials into smaller particles at or near the surface of the Earth. The process of weathering takes place when a rock is exposed to an environmental condition that supports weathering. It can change in pressure, temperature or substances mainly water. As a result of weathering, the rocks are weakened and broken. This broken particles are known as clasts and it can be small or large. The continuous weathering that takes place on detached fragments break them into smaller particles and thus they become susceptible to other exogenic processes such as erosion, transportation, and deposition.

The rock fragment that is broken from a huge rock mass as a result of weathering will be removed with the aid of various agents known as erosion...
