Explain how sedimentary rock is formed?

Report as

Just like it sounds...
Sediments from a lot of different minerals and broken up rocks pushed together... With an extreme amount of pressure, to create another rock.

Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water. Sedimentation is the collective name for processes that cause mineral and/or organic particles (detritus) to settle and accumulate or minerals to precipitate from a solution. Particles that form a sedimentary rock by accumulating are called sediment. Before being deposited, sediment was formed by weathering and erosion in a source area, and then transported to the place of deposition by water, wind, ice, mass movement or glaciers which are called agents of denudation.

Easy:
Sedimentary rocks are formed by the erosion and harding of sediments also called deposition
