How would a geologist identify where an igneous rock was formed?

 Igneous rocks form when magma from inside the Earth moves toward the surface or is forced above the Earth's surface as lava and ash by a volcano.
Many igneous rocks can be identified by the position of their minerals. The minerals usually fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

For items 1–5, match each term with its description below. Type the letter of your answer choice in the box below each description. A. Australia's natural wonder that can be seen from space B. chain of islands C. the deepest ocean depth in the world is found here D. 75 percent of the world's active volcanoes are located here E. destination for hikers in New Zealand 1. Mariana Trench (1 point) 2. Archipelago (1 point) 3. Great Barrier Reef (1 point) 4. Ring of Fire (1 point)

The correct answers are:

1. Mariana Trench - the deepest ocean depth in the world is found here;

Located near the North Mariana Islands, the Mariana Trench is a place where the Eurasian, Philippine, and Pacific plates have their boundary, which contributed to this incredibly deep crack in the ocean crust.

2. Archipelago - chain of islands;

Archipelago is a term that is used for a chain of islands, made in the same way by the same factors, and usually they are in close proximity,even though there's exceptions.

3. Great Barrier Reef - Australia's natural wonder that can be seen from space;

This is the biggest coral reef in the whole world, and it stretches along the eastern and northeastern coast of Australia;

4. Ring of Fire - D. 75 percent of the world's active volcanoes are located here;

The Ring of Fire is located alongside the boundary of the Pacific plate with the other plates, and since there's subduction zones all over its boundary, there's lots of active volcanoes.

Please help! science question about Continental Rift! Describe how a volcano is formed at a Continental Rift

Two pieces of land dividing at the fault pull away from each other. Magma goes up through the crack between the two separating sides of land, creating an eruption. When the magma cools, it forms a land mass (volcano), which is then susceptible to another eruption if more magma escapes.

What is the most likely reason that two of the planets have rotations that are different than would be expected by the nebular hypothesis? As the dust cloud collapsed due to gravity, the protostar's gravity sent out shock waves As the growing planet was clearing it's path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet Gravitation influence of other planets They just got tired

The most appropriate answer is "As the growing planet was clearing its path around the sun, two large planetessimals collided, tipping the growing planet". This phenomenon happened to the earth in the early stages of the development of the solar system. Scientist theorize that a planet called 'Thea' collided with the Earth. This collision resulted in the present tilt in the Earth's axis and the creation of the moon.

Summarize the basis of the Shinto religion. What are the gods called?

Shinto (神道 Shintō) is the name given to the non-Buddhist religious practices of Japan. The word Shinto ("Way of the Gods") was adopted first from the written Chinese (神道), combining two kanji: "shin" (神), meaning gods or spirits (originally from the Chinese word shen); and "tō" (道), meaning "do", or a philosophical path or study (originally from the Chinese word tao). The terms Kami no michi and kannagara also can be used and the meanings are very similar.
