1. Sketch the rock formation cycle. 2. Explain the process of different type of rock fomation and give 4 examples of rocks that can be found in Malaysia for each type of rocks. (a) (b) (c) Igneus Rock Sedimentation Rocks Metamorfic rocks

3. Differentiate Intrusive and Extrusive Igneous rocks and give 4 examples for each type 4. Explain the formation of soil. (a) (b) (c) Organic soil Residual soil Transported soil

5. An undisturbed sample was taken from a proposed site. The data collected from the soil sample are: Volume of soil sample Mass of tube Mass of tube and wet soil Mass of tube and dry soil Nilai GS = 2.69, determine;a. Bulk density b. Dry density c. Moisture content d. Void ratio e. Porosity f. Degree of saturation g. Air void %. = 1.664 x 10-3 m3 = 1.864 kg = 5.018 kg = 4.328 kg.
