Granite is an example of Abyssal Igneous Rock. An igneous rock that crystallized at considerable depth in the crust; plutonic rock. Igneous rocks forming below the Earth's surface at some depth due to cooling of magma are abyssal igneous rocks e.g Granite.
The material that comes out of a volcano at the time of eruption is ________
The material that comes out of a volcano at the time of eruption is Solid, liquid, gaseous. Volcanic eruptions are caused by magma (a mixture of liquid rock, crystals, and dissolved gas) expelled onto the Earth's surface.
Which of the following is/are the correct characteristic(s) of primary seismic wave?
The characteristic(s) of primary seismic wave are that it is a longitudinal and compressional wave, it is analogous to sound waves and it travels with faster speed through solids but slowly through liquids. Primary waves (P- waves) are compressional waves that are longitudinal in nature.
The transverse, longitudinal and surface waves in an earthquake originate from ________
The transverse, longitudinal and surface waves in an earthquake originate from the focus within the body of the earth.The epicenter of an earthquake sends out waves which are like an object dropped on to a still body of water that sends out ripples. After the stone hits the water ripples move outwards from the centre in every direction. An earthquake releases energy as shock waves, the so-called seismic waves, which ripple across the earth's surface.
