The rock face along the coastline becomes eroded by waves continually washing against them. In the rock face, there are horizontal layers of harder and softer rock. As can be imagined, the softer, less resistant rock gets eroded more quickly than the harder, more resistant rock. A wave-cut headland is formed where the rock is more resistant and so sticks out further than the softer rock does. The softer rocks continue to get eroded, retreating further and further backwards - further back than the headlands forming a bay.
You find headlands and bays on the sea coast of a country.
The wind and rain wear away the soft rock and form bays the hard rock however cannot be worn away and therefore stays creating a headland.
A Discordant Coastline I think.
headlands will experience the most, because they are the line of least resistance (sticking out into the sea) and will catch the full force of the waves, as opposed to the bays and shorelines they shelter.
A bay is an area that is surrounded by land on three sides. A headland is surrounded by water on three sides. Headlands usually have steep sea cliffs.

Headlands and Bays form along coastlines where there are resistant (harder) and less resistant (softer) rocks. Destructive waves erode the areas of softer rock more rapidly to form bays. The waves cannot however, wear away the resistant rock as quickly and so headlands are left protruding out into the sea. The headlands are now explosed to the full force of the waves, and become more vulnerable to erosion.Hope that helped :D
Mainly boulder clay (Soft rock) and chalk (Hard rock) these are what also form headlands and bays due to the difference in their resistance to weathering.

Wave refraction causes deposition in the bays Wave refraction causes erosion of the headlands
Basically, a bay is formed first, which is when the coast erodes and makes kind of a C shape. the bits that are sticking out in the sea are called the headlands. headlands erode too, but slowly, because they are made of a hard rock. bays are made of softer rocks, therefore they erode quickly.
The weaker rocks are eroded more quickly, forming bays, while the harder rocks form headlands. Softer rocks can be eroded at rates of over 2 metres a year, harder rocks can be eroded at rates as little as 0.001 metres a year. As headlands stick out into the sea, they are more easily attacked by wind and waves.
You'll find out the answer once you read your textbook and stop searching up answers, like a lazy person. :D
Yes, the word 'headlands' is a noun, the plural form of the singular noun 'headland'; a word for a narrow piece of land that sticks out into the ocean; a word for a thing (things).
Headlands don't have beaches because they are cliffs
Headlands are inanimate objects they can not act at all.
The member of parliament for Headlands is Mutasa Didymus Noel Edwin.
Pieces of land that 'stick' out into the sea could be headlands, cliffs, tombolos, arches, spits etc, depending on their shape, which would be easier to determine from aerial photographs. If the land is not a high rocky formation (cliffs), or in between sandy bays on either side (headlands), it is most likely a spit/ hooked spit.
Caspar Headlands State Beach was created in 1972.
Harmony Headlands State Park was created in 2003.
Headlands Beach State Park was created in 1953.
Mendocino Headlands State Park was created in 1974.
Headlands are finger-shaped projections that form when cliffs of hard rock erode more slowly than surrounding softer rock does.
