Forces That Cause Earth Movements
P waves and S waves are different, they could dothings for example the P wave has different ways and so does the S wave. P waves only can go through solids, liquids, and gases and S waves only could go through solids. Both P waves and S waves could go through the mantle. P waves go through the core, the iron must be melted because if its not the P wave cant go through the core. Sometimes P waves and S waves could cause lots of damage, in the water especially because when the P waves and S waves hit the water it makes the waves go even bigger than they used to be.
The earth has the following 4 parts which includes the crust, mantle, the Earth’s layers, and its core. The core is sort of like the yellow yolk of an egg. The outside part of the earth is made of super-hot melted rock. The crust is made out of solid and has plates.
Divergent plate boundaries move away from each other. The crust is forming from magma that rises to the earth’s surface between two plates. The middle part of the divergent plate is the mid ocean ridge. Divergent plate boundaries are formed by volcanic islands.
There’s 3 plate boundaries called divergent, transform, and convergent boundary. Divergent boundary are when two plates move away from each other. Convergent boundary are when one plate sides over the top of another. Transform boundary are when two plates slide past each other.
This is a picture of the P waves and S waves
This is a picture of Earth
This is when the Earth moves and makes an earthquake
This is a picture that shows the Divergent plate boundary
This is a picture that shows the 3 plate boundaries
This picture shows the part inside the earth were theres 4 parts to it
When the earthquake happens its possible the rock or the mantle moves. Scientists think that (are sure) the mantle convects. The mantle could move from up to side ways. It could also move in circles and across.
