How do the materials in the mantle move?
What causes the mantle to move?
slow movement of Earth’s solid mantle caused by convection currents transferring heat from the interior of the Earth to the surface.
How do the rocks in the mantle move?
How does mantle convection move materials?
What makes massive plates move?
What causes tectonic plates to move *?
What happens to the material involved during convection?
What happens during convection in the mantle?
What is transferred through the mantle by physically moving hot rocks?
When the mantle convects, heat is transferred through the mantle by physically moving hot rocks. Mantle convection is the result of heat transfer from the core to the base of the lower mantle. … Mantle convection occurs at rates of centimetres per year.
How does a convection cell affect the crust material above it?
Where does the heat come from that drives convection current in the mantle?
Heat in the mantle comes from the Earth’s molten outer core, decay of radioactive elements and, in the upper mantle, friction from descending tectonic plates.
How does heat transfer from within Earth’s crust to the surface?
What causes the heat from the interior of Earth explain how it causes movement or activities on the crust?
What elements make up most of the mantle?
What are the two factors that affects conduction on the Earth’s surface?
What type of heat transfer occurs between the mantle and the core?
How does the conduction in the surface of the earth?
What factors affect how heat energy is transferred?
