Decomposed granite

Decomposed granite is rock of granitic origin that has weathered to the point that it readily fractures into smaller pieces of weak rock Further weathering produces rock that easily crumbles into mixtures of gravel-sized particles sand and silt-sized particles with some clay Eventually the gravel may break down to produce a mixture of silica sand silt particles and clay

Factors That Affect pH

As organic substances decay carbon dioxide forms and combines with water to produce a weak acid called carbonic acid Large amounts of carbonic acid lower the pH of water making the water acidic Furthermore natural unpolluted rainwater can be as acidic as 5 6 pH because it absorbs CO2 as it falls
