Is Mt Rainier a hot spot?
No. It is part of the Cascade volcanoes, which is a chain of volcanoes running from British Columbia to northern California, that are fed by a convergent boundary between the Juan de Fuca and the North American plates. The Cascade volcanoes themselves are part of the enormous Ring of Fire that roughly encircles the Pacific. The subduction zone between the Juan de Fuca and North American plates which feeds the volcanoes (including Rainier) is just a bit to the west, under the Pacific Ocean.

Mount Rainier is one of an enormous ring of volcanoes known as the Ring of Fire, which roughly encircles the Pacific Ocean in a horseshoe shape. More specifically, it is a mem…ber of the Cascade volcanic mountain range. The Cascade volcanoes are a chain of volcanoes running from Northern California in the United States of America to southern British Columbia, Canada fed by the subduction of the Juan de Fuca oceanic plate (which borders, but is distinct from the Pacific Plate by means of an oceanic ridge off the Pacific Coast) under the North American plate a few hundred miles to the west of the volcanoes.
No. Mount Mazama is associated with a subduction zone.
Mount Pinatubo is not associated with a hot spot. It is associatedwith a subduction zone.
No. Krakatoa is associated with a subduction zone.
no it was created when the eurasian plate and the pacific plate collided
no because the Gorda plate and the North American plate which makes one of the plates go under the other and something snaps and lets a force which makes magma force out Mt.Sh…asta's hole

Mount Rainier is the highest mountain of the Cascade Range of thePacific Northwest, and the highest mountain in the state ofWashington. It is a large active stratovolcano loca…ted 54 miles (87km) south-southeast of Seattle. It is the most topographicallyprominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the CascadeVolcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m). Mt.Rainier is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in theworld, and it is on the Decade Volcano list. Because of its largeamount of glacial ice, Mt. Rainier could potentially producemassive lahars that could threaten the entire Puyallup Rivervalley.
