What is rock cycle?

Rocks do not remain in their original form for long but may undergo transformation. The Rock cycle is a continuous process through which old rocks are transformed into new ones. when the molten magma cools; it solidifies to become igneous rock. These igneous rocks are broken down into small particles that are transported and deposited to form sedimentary rocks. When the igneous and sedimentary rocks are subjected to heat and pressure they change into metamorphic rocks. The metamorphic rocks which are still under great heat and pressure melt down to form molten magma. This molten magma again can cool down and solidify into igneous rocks
