How are earthquakes made?

The earth's crust which is 3 to 45 miles deep is in sections called tectonic plates. These slide againt one another. When they slide, they sometimes snag against each other. That entanglement even cracks the crust. All movement does not create earthquakes. It depends on the direction of the movement and the strength of the movement.

What does plate tectonic theory mean

Plate tectonics is the theory that Earth's outer shell is divided into several plates that glide over the mantle, the rocky inner layer above the core. The plates act like a hard and rigid shell compared to Earth's mantle.

Shifting tectonic plates causes what?

Tectonic plates are also called fault lines.

When the plates shift, they cause friction which results in earthquakes. The severity of a quake is dependent upon the force of the shifting of the plates.

How a volcanoes is formed?

volcanoes are formed by tectonic plate friction. Asplate rub against each other, they form cracks, gaps, and voids, that can fill with the magma in the earth's mantle. AThis magma is under extremely high pressure, and any crack or gap that it can find, it will use. As a volcano forms above the surface, there will be a ***** or cone that forms above the volcano, and as presure builds underneath, the volcano grows, sometimes to very high altitudes, before it ever eruprts. Sometimes, it will die out, losing it's pressure, and go dormant. Ther is NO SUCH THING as a DEAD vocalno, they just are dormant for longer periods of time. Some of the volcanoes here on earth have erupted alot, others have only erupted sporadically, but If it eprupts even once, then eventually it will erupt again.
