Erosion in Mercury Venus and the Moon

Erosion in Mercury, Venus, and the Moon “Erosion is the process that breaks things down. As far as were concerned, erosion is the breakdown of the continents and the land around you. The overall effect of breaking down and weathering the land is called denudation. Denudation is the process of erosion. In nature, large things are broken down into smaller things. Boulders become sand. Mountains are rained on and become hills. The pieces of the mountain become smaller pieces and go down the sides of hills. Weathering and erosion always happen in a downhill direction.” (Break It Down) Erosion depends on factors like the presence of an atmosphere and also it indirectly depends on the distance between the planet and the sun.
Natural elements like wind, rain, etc cause erosion. In other words, fluid flow is the main contributor to erosion. “Water, air, and even ice are fluids because they tend to flow from one place to another due to the force of gravity. Of the three, liquid water is the most common agent of erosion because of theres so much of it on the surface of the Earth.’ (What is erosion?)&nbsp.&nbsp.
