What are the 3 main types of stress in rocks?
tension, compression, and snearing
How does tension change the shape of the Earth?
Tension pulls on the crust so that it becomes thinner in the middle.
Compare the way compression effects to the way that tension effects the crust?
Compression squeases the crust while tension pulls it apart.
What is a fault?
A fault is a breal or crack in the Earth's lithosphere along which the rocks move.
why do faults often cccur along plate boundries?
where forces of plate motion push or pull the crust so much that the crust breaks.
What type of fault is formed when plates diverge or pull apart?
what type of faults are formes when plates are pushed together?
name 5 kind of landforms caused by plate movement.
platues, fault blocks, anti cliens, cin cliens, and folded mountains.
what are 3 landforms produced by compression in the earths crust.
cin clines, anti cliens, and folded mountains
what landform is produced by tension?
Fault block mountains
