True

Explanation

Mechanical or physical weathering is the disintegration and breaking down of components in the earth’s crust through the action of physical forces. It occurs due to the changes in temperature during the day and the night in cold and dry places. But chemical weathering is usually common in places with very hot and humid climates. It occurs in the climatic conditions of the hot and humid regions of the equators, tropics and sub-tropics. The action of the constant availability of water and the rising temperature is responsible for the faster weathering of rocks compared to other regions.
