1 Vocabulary game by Rachel Schneider

2 Which is a force that acts on rock to change its shape or volume Tension Stress Shearing

3 define tension A Occurs where two plates come together B rocks on either side slip past each other C Occurs when two plates pull apart

4 which picture is an example of compression A B C

5 Define shearing Rocks on either side of a fault slip past each other sideways Stress that pushes a mass rocks in two opposite directions A large area of flat land A B C

6 A normal fault.... Cuts through rock at an angle Breaks in earths crust where rocks have slipped past each other Neither A B C

7 The blocks move in a reverse direction in a Normal fault Plateau reverse fault

8 In a _______, the rocks slip past each other sideways, with little up and down motion Strike-slip fault earthquake Normal fault

9 A plateau is.. a fancy sandwich A large area of flat land elevated high above sea level Bends in rock that form when compression shortens and thickens Earth's crust A B C

10 The shaking and trembling that results from movement of rock beneath Earth's surface is an example of... Earthquake Seismic waves Magnitude

11 The______ is the area beneath Earth's surface where rock that was under stress begins to break or move epicenter Plate Focus

12 The point directly above the focus epicenter Crust Seismograph

13 P waves... seismic waves that compress and expand the ground Vibrations from the core shake the ground violently A B C

14 the seismic waves that can vibrate from side to side or up and down P Waves S waves Love Waves

15 records and measures an earthquakes seismic waves Richter scale Moment magnitude scale Seismograph

16 ______ move more slowly than P and S waves, but they can produce severe ground movements. Surface Waves P waves Seismic waves

17 Rates the amount of shaking from an earthquake Richter scale Moment Magnitude scale Modified Mercalli scale

18 The single number that geologists assign to an earthquake based on the earthquakes size Magnitude Seismic wave folds

19 The richter scale rates the magnitude of small earthquakes based on the size of the earthquake's waves as recorded by seismographs True false

20 The moment magnitude rates... The seismic waves released by an earthquake A The total energy an earthquake released B The size of the earthquake C

21 The pattern of lines that is the record of an earthquake's seismic waves produced by a seismograph is called a seismogram True false

22 Wrong!!

23 Correct!!
