Name any one method by which water help in the formation of soil

Water enters the rocks through the cracks in them and freezes at low temperatures. This expands and contracts the rocks, which results in the breaking down of the rocks. Another way in which water helps in the formation of soil is when running water flows along rocks. The flow of water along the rocks creates a friction between water and rocks, which results in the weathering of rocks. This leads to the formation of soil. The soil thus formed may flow along with the water and get deposited elsewhere.

the flowing water gets filled up in the cracks formed by the uneven heating of the sun. this water becomes frozen and thus widens the cracks and this is how these rocks break down into very fine soil.

rocks break into smaller particles while water dashing it force so it helps in formation soil
