Question Solved1 Answer 1. Chalk, Kaolin, and Diatomite are three fine-grained sedimentary rocks and are often white in color: There are two distinguishing characteristics/tests to tell these three rocks apart: 1. fizz or does not fizz in hydrochloric acid, and 2. float or does not float on water. Shale and Claystone are two other fine-grained sedimentary rocks composed of many distinct minerals (typically non-white in color). Fissility is the main difference that is characteristically used in separating these two rocks. Match the distinguishing characteristics/tests shown in correctly identifying each of these rocks.

Chalk - fizzes in hydrochloric acid.  Chalk is composed of calcium carbonate that reacts with HCl and releases carbon dioxide gas. Kaolin - does not fizz in hydrochloric acid, does not float in water.  Kaolin is a rock rich in clay mineral named kaolinite i.e. silicate mineral which doesn't react with HCl.  Diatomite - does not fizz in hydrochloric acid, floats in water.  Diatomite are silica rich porous rock ...
