Answer:

The process which involves plants to cause weathering to a seed that falls into a crack in a rock therefore, breaking apart the rock is called Mechanical weathering.

<h3>Mechanical weathering</h3>

This is defined as the set of weathering processes that break apart rocks into particles (sediment) through physical processes. The most common form of mechanical weathering is the freeze-thaw cycle. Water seeps into holes and cracks in rocks then the water freezes and expands, therefore making the holes larger eventually making the rock split apart.
