Not quite fast, just a few centimeters per year. Its equivalent
to the rate of fingernail growth.
well it depends on the plate some move 1 inch a year others 12
inches a year
lithosperic plates move fast why do you think we cant see it happining?
they move as fast as your fingernails grow
The earth's plates move slowly because how big the earthquake is he bigger the amount the plates will move and the slower the earthquake is the less it moves.
plates move around the speed of how fast your nails grow
2.5 centimeters per year
2 centimeters per year
tectonic plates mover SUPER SLOW usually on a couple of centimeters a year
i think it because of how fast the earthquake moves so people do not have time to go and watch the plates move!
between 2.5cm/year and 15cm
Tectonic plates move very slowly, but earthquakes are quite sudden. So, there are elements of slow change and fast change. Continental drift is slow.
Tectonic plates move about the same rate that finger nails or your hair grows (centimeters per year). However, it varies from plate to plate. Some move at 3 centimeters while other's move around 6.
The continents are always moving on top of vast tectonic plates. They move at a rate similar to how fast a human's fingernails grow. Every year they move a few centimeters more.
a few cent. per year...
yes the plates can move slowly
