The movement of the ocean floor on either side of a midocean ridge is best known as?
What should you do if there is water on the floor around your unit inside but when you shut it off it is still cooling?
Are magnetic patterns important evidence for plate tectonics why?
Asked in Physics

Asked in Food Safety
How bad is it to eat food off the floor?
That depends on the floor. If the floor is as clean as the dishes you eat from, and hasn't been walked on, you could be OK. Generally, it is not a good idea to eat food that has landed on the floor since the flooring could harbor bacteria you cannot see. That could be a problem, unless your immune system is good (if you survive eating off the floor, that must be the case).
Asked in Skeletal System
Single irregular bat-shape bone forming part of the cranial floor?
It is a sphenoid bone; single, irregular bat(a bird)-shape bone forming part of the CRANIAL Floor. Not many people think sphenoid bone being part of the cranial bone that is why they don't find any answer to this question. but Sphenoid bone is one of the cranial bone and can be found on the cranial floor when looking at the skull from its superior view.

What is the rock that makes up much of the ocean floor?
Classically, it is Basalt, however it could be any 'Basic' or 'Mafic' rock similar to Basalt. Basalt is most common because it is formed due to rapid cooling, which is classically the case on the ocean floor with tonnes of water carrying the heat away. This forms small crystals, which define Basalt.
