The element mercury can change size and shape. It is often referredto as liquid silver or water silver because of its water -likeflow.
This is a physical change. An example is breaking glass. It does not change its material, but its size shape or state. A chemical change is where it reacts with something. Iro…n rusting is an example, as the iron reacts to water.
they can increase or move the size of the continents
b'cause sadly everyone tht was like CHINA'MEN reeked te BUTHOLE lols .
both because the wind blows sand dunes and spreads parts of the dessert everywhere and changs the shapes.
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.
A lot of factors and processes caused the continents to change in size.Most of them also helped in changing their shapes as well.These processes are group into two (2) based o…n where they take place. 1."The External Processes",these are those that takes place on the earth surface and they are: a.Weathering b.Mass wasting c.Erosion and d.Denudation, While, 2."The Internal Processes" are those that occurs from within or inside the Earths crust and they are: a.Vulcanicity b.Tectonics c.Earthquakes and d.Action of underground water.These external and internal processes works hand in hand in re-structuring,re-sculpting and re-shaping the earths landforms thereby changing the sizes of the continents and re-cycling its materials and compositions. \n
Im afraid not, what we can not see is how long they stretch under water.
Asia is the largest continent.
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.
IT IS PHYSICAL change
