This changes the shapes of continents because different parts of the continents converge and diverge at different rates. So the Northern part of a continent could be spreading… apart faster than the southern.
no because if the shape is changed it wouldn't be a translation it wouldn't be congruent and you need it congruent or else it wouldn't be a translation. thank you for reading …my answer i really needed this for my homework i had it in my mind but, i forgot it so i decided to look it up and answered my own question. THAT IS MY ANSWER BYE!
yes. if 2 or more forces act on something, they change its shape or volume (or both). the effect can be noticeable with flexible objects.
No, there are several more plates than continents (twelve I think) and the plates include both oceans and land. Earthquakes are the result of plates moving, but don't worry, p…lates do not move fast, only about a centimeter a year.
Simply the moon does not change its shape it stays round all the time. The light from the sun only hits a part of the moon at a time. So simply you only see the part of the mo…on the light shines on
Physical Weathering It can be from ice and from plants. Water can enter tiny cracks in a rock and will expand when it is frozen. Then the ice will expand and break the rock. A…nother way water can physically weather rocks is, when a heavy layer of snow melts off the rocks then the layers underneath expand. The layers will begin to crack apart into sheets. When the water evaporates, crystals grow. The growing crystals push apart apart the rock layer and enlarge the cracks. How plants can weather a rock is when a tree starts growing under a rock it will keep growing until it makes its way through the rock and breaks it apart.
In The Moon
first of all, it doesn't change its size and shape, otherwise, changes its position then changing the view of the illuminated part of the moon as seen on Earth.
Im afraid not, what we can not see is how long they stretch under water.
