Hi all, howz yu doin? Just wondering if anyone can help me with this task, i haven't got a clue. I will it say how i see it.  Consider an atom of carbon, as part of a molecule of carbon dioxide, within the atmosphere. Describe two routes, including the processes involved, by which this atmospheric carbon can end up in a rock. With one route including, processes occurring primarily in the ocean, and the other route on land.         
if anyone can help, please simple terms for a simple guy (lol)

I have left my email in case anyone can help me email address removed - please send a private message

         many thanx
