Why do soils have different masses?
This is due to different soil compositions.

they are different because they do not come in from the same place .
Dirt, huh? Stuff to grow plants and such I guess your wondering. Plants require a mix of finely ground up rock commonly called dirt, but more than that is needed for most livi…ng plants to thrive. Humus or old decaying plant matter should be well mixed into this fine material to provide absorbency to retain water and to provide nutrient for new life. Some coarser old rock, like sand, to provide drainage and air amongst the dirt, is also the stuff of the best dirt. There are many many different kinds of soil around the world owning differences to the climate, wind and water conditions present.
Cuz I said so...>.>
Soils can be different in many different way. It depends on the amount of humus it has in it, Where the soil came from it's environment, the PH the amount of chemicals there a…re in that soil also th texture and weight would make different types of soil different from others. Hope that answered your question :)
There are a lot of differences but the main few are how acidic they are (different plants grow better with different acid levels) how nutrient rich soil is, and how it will re…tain water and how quickly it will erode
Soil is a combination of weathered rocks, sand, and decomposed organisms. Different types include sand, silt, clay, or loams.
Prairie soils developed many yards thick, whereas forest soils tend to be much thinner. Prairie grasses grow very deep roots, then when buffalo came along and ate it or tramp…led it, the plant sheds those roots to match the above-ground growth. The green leaves regrow every year, or several times a year according to this pruning. The shed roots and any trampled or dead leaves become compost which improves and thickens the soil. Forests do not have such fast soil development, because their only source of new compost is generally from leaves as they fall, or occasional trees when they fall. The accumulation of biomass is much slower. Evergreens do not shed yearly leaves like deciduous trees, so they develop soil slowest. Also, evergreens tend to grow acid soils compared to prairies.
The sandy soils let the water pass through but the clay soils hold the water
Red soil is made of clay. It may have nutrients from the water it holds. Mountain soil is generally low on humus and high in minerals and salts.
Soil is a substance in which there is moisture ans nutrients for plants and animals live in and grow. Some types of natural soil: Sand, dirt, leaf mulch There are far too m…any different types of soil to list them in this limited venue. However, the three basic soil textures (types?) are silt, sand, and clay. All soils have varying amounts of each of these plus a varying amount of organic matter.
they are different because caly soil can hold water extremley well but sandy soil holds water poorly
s the moon is mostly a vary big rock \
one tastes better than the other
Organic soil cannot contain the chemicals typically used inagriculture.
