PB means Planta Baja (lower level)
Places that are not along fault lines planes* in the earth would have very few earthquakes. +++ In particular, places far from subduction zones, in which one of the …Earth's crustal plates is being forced down below another. *A fault plane is the fracture with displacement itself. Its line is the trace of the fault plane's intersection with the land surface. There are no places on Earth that experience absolutely no earthquakes.
Here is the answer directly from Otis: "The Shuffle button is used only by Otis Technicians when they need to change the placement of the lower/upper deck elevators. It allows… them to safely board the lower deck car top from the main lobby. A special code is required from the Elevator management system to allow shuffle operation to be activated." Keep in mind that the elevators in question are double-decked and serve two floors at once.
PB means Plant Baja which in English means Main Floor.
an earthquake is when two of the earth's tectonic plaits repsition or move. when an earthquake happens there are also normally aftershocks.also some move together to form a mo…untain or move apart to create crakes in the earh's surface. lastly they are VERRY dangerus normally there are a hundred people dead and mre missing. that is what an earthquake is.
No, it doesn't. I was told that it was for people that have OCD so that they would feel better.
Elevation is the height of a landform above sea level.
earthquakes are start when two plates start to rub next to each other and the country on top starts to move there a earthquakes all around the world .
Answer . 1. they shake the ground ... up and down or sidewise 2. the relieve the internal pressure that builds up as the tectonic plates move. . Here effects of an eart…hquakes:. Tsunami . A tsunami is a series of huge waves caused by an earthquake under the sea. These waves travel at about 800 km per hour. Before a tsunami reaches the shore, it slows down. The water along the shore recedes as if there were a very low tide. When the water comes back, the height of its waves may reach up to 30 m. It can destroy houses, crops and people as it goes inland and then back to the sea.. Seiche . An underwater earthquake can also generate a big wave in an enclosed body of water like a lake or a pond. This big wave which can be about 3 m high is called a seiche. A seiche can cause immediate flooding of areas near the lake.. Faulting . Strong earthquakes can also change the earth's surface. Cracks may form on the crust. When this happens, part of the crust may be displaced horizontally or vertically. In some cases, a section of the crust is raised above the section near it. Shallow gaps may also be formed on the crudt.. Landslide . Some earthquakes affect hilly or mountainous areas. Continiuous shaking of the ground changes the psition of some rocks or dislodges them. When these rocks roll downhill, they can destroy houses on their path or kill people.. Sand Blows . When an earthquake occurs in a place where there is much ground water, water is forced out of the ground in the form of an earthquake fountain. When this happens, sand is forced out and deposited on the ground in the form of volcanolike mounds. These are called sand blows.. Fire . Earthquakes can also cause fire. This happens when electric wires are destroyed and electric posts are upturned. Fire can easily spread to residential houses and other buildings.

When you press the button, a microswitch creates a circuit. That circuit sends a signal to the elevator controller, which is a computer that runs the elevator. Instantly, the …controller powers the light inside the button, which is usually an LED. At the same time, the elevator is dispatched to your location based on a mathematical formula. Once the elevator arrives, the LEDs in the button are turned off. Buttons vary greatly, but a generally divided into vandal resistant or plastic. Vandal resistance is typically defined as a metal button that lands on solid metal when depressed. See www.epco.us for examples of many kinds of buttons.
Well, how i would think of it is that it would wobble around so much that the weight of the elevator would snap the rope that transports it up and down, and the elevator would… fall to the bottom.
Because the Earth is an active planet driven by a molten core.
