Chemical and mechanical weathering are known to be types of weathering that can change a type of rock into something that is completely different. Sometimes this can also be used to make the figure into something that is completely new from what it used to be. Chemical weathering will require the use of chemicals to ensure that rock transformation will be made properly.
For mechanical, this would still require pressure so that the rocks can be changed into something else. Take note that there are different categories that are available for chemical weathering while for mechanical weathering, the only pressure is needed to ensure that weathering will take place.
