What happens when pressure is put on sides of a plate?
When pressure is put on the sides of a plate, an earthquake might form!
Asked in Clouds
Is low pressure or high pressure stronger?
High pressure is stronger. Pressure is caused by the gas particles in a container hitting the sides of said container. At high pressure, the particles hit the sides of the container much more and therefore are pushing harder on the sides. ...

What is a piece of land surrounding water on three sides called?
Peninsula. Florida is a peninsula.
Asked in Physics
Why does pressure rise in a balloon when you squash it?
the pressure in a ballon increase because the gas particles are hitting the edges of the sides and it gets pushed through the sides so it becomes more pressure from inside than the outside ...

What happens if you add or subtract a value to both sides of an inequality?
The direction of the inequality remains unchanged. The direction changes when you divide or multiply both sides by a negative number. It also changes if both sides are raised to a negative exponent. ...

Asked in Geology, Earth Sciences, Grammar
What is the name given to a body of land with water surrounding it on three sides?
It's called a peninsula.
Asked in Physics
Why doesnt the pressure of atmosphere break windows?
Because there is the same pressure on both sides of the glass.
Asked in Physics
Why doesn't the atmospheric pressure break windows?
This is because the pressure will be the same on both sides. It will not break since the pressure is even throughout. ...

Asked in Toyota Land Cruiser
What is the name of the land that rises above the surrounding land and usually have steep sides?
You might be thinking of a plateau
Asked in Volcanoes, Earth Sciences
Do volcanoes form different shapes and types by explosions?
the shape and size of a volcano all depends on the pressure exerted onto the magma upon it rising upwards, for example; a composite volcano has very steep sides, so therefore alot of pressure has built up beneath the earths crust and has quickly rose up giving the earth no choice but the form the steep sides. whereas a shield volcano has gentle sloping sides meaning not alot of pressure has been gained letting the earth adapt more to the changes as...
