1 = The differentiation between these layers is due to processes that took place during the early stages of Earth's formation (ca. 4.5 billion years ago). At this time, melting would have caused denser substances to sink toward the center while less-dense materials would have migrated to the crust

2= The interior of Earth is very hot (the temperature of the core reaches more than 5,000 degrees Celsius) for two main reasons: The heat from when the planet formed, The heat from the decay of radioactive elements

3= The flow of the mantle causes tectonic plates to move in different directions. When the edges of plates meet, four things can happen:

slip. play. two plates slide. past each other.

collision. play. two plates crash. and fold up.

spreading. play. two plates move apart. from each other.

subduction. play. one plate sinks. below the other
