Heat from the Earth's interior.
Yes, the mantle is part iron.
Convection currents in the mantle create plate tectonics.
In the mantle, temperatures range between 500 to 900 Â°C (932 to 1,652 Â°F) at the upper boundary with the crust; to over 4,000 Â°C (7,230 Â°F) near the boundary with… the core.
No. While much of the mantle is hot enough that the rock would meltif exposed to the surface, the enormous pressure keeps in a statethat is technically considered solid. Unlik…e the rigid rock of thecrust and uppermost mantle, most mantle rock is plastic in texture,meaning it is soft and easily deformed.
It is the second layer of the earth... That i am trying to figure out what it is composed o help me...
The primary cause of convection currents in Earth's mantle isbelieved to be that the temperature decreases the further from thecore you go. The core of the earth is hotter tha…n the crust.
Tectonic plates are formed from the lithosphere which is the solid brittle portion of the upper mantle and the crust so tectonic plates are part of both the crust and the uppe…r brittle mantle.
it is the stuff that is under us if we dug a hole we will found it tee hee .
Component of Earth 1. Atmosphere 2. Hydrosphere 3. Lithosphere 4. Biosphere
the temperature of the mantle can range up to 500 to 900 o C
There are three main sources of heat in the deep earth: (1) heatfrom when the planet formed and accreted, which has not yet beenlost; (2) frictional heating, caused by denser …core materialsinking to the center of the planet; and (3) heat from the decay ofradioactive elements.
