Temperatures of most magmas are in the range 700 °C to 1300 °C (or 1292 °F to 2372 °F), but very rare carbonatite melts may be as cool as 600 °C, and komatiite melts may have been as hot at 1600 °C

What does the temperature have on the characteristics of magma?

Temperature, among other factors, effects the viscosity(thickness) of magma. However, for the most part, the temperature of magma is relatively consistent because magma is the type of molten rock that has not yet exited the volcano, so there are fewer factors to effect the temperature.

Three ways magma form?

How do temperature pressure and fluid content affect the formation of magma?

The air affects magma. Once magma is released above ground, called lava, the air hardens it. While it is underground, the higher the temperature and pressure, the runnier the magma.

What factors affect the viscosity of magma?

Three main factors affect the viscosity of magma. They are composition, temperature of the magma and the amount of dissolved gases the magma contains.

What affects the type of igneous rock that is formed?

Mineral composition of the magma, Rate of cooling of the magma, Temperature of the magma, Presence of volatiles and Amount of water present in the magma.

What is the relationship between the viscosity of a magma and its temperature?

Viscosity will fall as the temperature rises.

Were do magma come from?

Magma comes from the melting of mantle due to the presence of high temperature at greater depth. This means that the magma comes from the center of the earth.

Why do some volcanoes erupt more violently than others?

It all depends on the consistency of the magma and the temperature of the magma. The thicker the magma is, the quieter the eruption. If the magma is thinner, the eruption will be more violent.
