Which of these is not a primary component of Earth's mantle?
Heat from the Earth's interior.
Yes, the mantle is part iron.
Convection currents in the mantle create plate tectonics.
In the mantle, temperatures range between 500 to 900 °C (932 to 1,652 °F) at the upper boundary with the crust; to over 4,000 °C (7,230 °F) near the boundary with the cor…e.
No. While much of the mantle is hot enough that the rock would melt if exposed to the surface, the enormous pressure keeps in a state that is technically considered solid.… Unlike the rigid rock of the crust and uppermost mantle, most mantle rock is plastic in texture, meaning it is soft and easily deformed.
It is the second layer of the earth... That i am trying to figure out what it is composed o help me...
The primary cause of convection currents in Earth's mantle is believed to be that the temperature decreases the further from the core you go. The core of the earth is hott…er than the crust.
Tectonic plates are formed from the lithosphere which is the solid brittle portion of the upper mantle and the crust so tectonic plates are part of both the crust and the uppe…r brittle mantle.
it is the stuff that is under us if we dug ahole we will found it tee hee
Component of Earth 1. Atmosphere 2. Hydrosphere 3. Lithosphere 4. Biosphere
the temperature of the mantle can range up to 500 to 900 o C
There are three main sources of heat in the deep earth: (1) heat from when the planet formed and accreted, which has not yet been lost; (2) frictional heating, caused by d…enser core material sinking to the center of the planet; and (3) heat from the decay of radioactive elements.
they drill into the earth but not all the way obviously and the predict that there is a mantel by volcanoes my teacher use to drill into the earth as a scientist but then retu…rned to teaching ans2. The interior of the Earth may be inferred by studying seismic waves at various points from a given earthquake. From this the depth of various layers and their acoustic velocity may be determined.
