Forces that sculpture the earth's surface?
I think it is the force created by the nature or natural forces.Such as the volcanic eruption,running water,wind and erosion.

Thanks for the feedback!
There is a couple forces one of them are erosion powered by water such a rivers
Rock samples and Indirect evidence from seismic waves.:)
They are Wind, Waves, Glaciers and Water/Ice
the magma has a lower density than the surrounding rocks and it is also forced to be pushed out
In order of Amount of effect Wind Water fall and flow Water ice expansion volcanic and tectonicthermochemical Reactions Simple weight of high structure… deform lower structures (mountains) silt buildup plant roots and decaying organic matter Solar Radiation Impacting astral bodies Rotation of the Earth stress Stress induced structural changes (earthquakes, slides, faults) Man
Gravity, magnetism, wind/air resistance, and sort of friction.
runnig water, and wind :)
Weathering, or erosion changes the Earth's surface slowly over time.

The acceleration due to gravity on the surface of Earth is about 9.8m/s2. That's the same for all objects and doesn't depend on the mass of the object. However, the force o…n an object depends on the mass of the object. That's why different people have different weights, and why most people weigh less than most trucks. Expressed in terms of force, the Earth's surface gravity is about 9.8 newtons per kilogram.
Generally, its higher temperature. The temperature of a rising magma is generally higher than the temperature of its surrounding rocks. Because of its higher temperature, it i…s also lighter compared to the surrounding rocks (it has a lower density), so it rises. Imagine a hot air balloon: it rises because the air inside the balloon is heated, heating the air lowers its density (makes it lighter). As long as the density of the air inside the balloon is lower than the density of the air outside the balloon, the balloon rises.
Destructive forces affect the Earth because a destructive force is a process in which Earth's landforms are broken down by: weathering, erosion, landslides, volcanic eruptions…, earth quakes, and floods. Rivers keep eroding the land under neath it so it keeps going farther and farther down. (That's how the Grand Canyon was formed).
It's the mutual forces of gravitational attraction between the Earth and each object.
