ConcepTest: Jovian Planet Characteristics part of Examples
The characteristics of four planets are listed below. Which planet is most likely to be classified as Jovian? a. Mainly rocky, volcanism, low gravity. b. Mainly rocky, no volcanism, high gravity. c. Mainly gaseous, ...

ConcepTest: Eccentricity and Temperature Distribution part of Examples
Mars has a more eccentric orbit of the Sun than Earth. Mars is 20% closer to the Sun during its winter than it is during its summer. How would temperature distributions on Earth be affected if we had a similarly ...

ConcepTest: Rotation part of Examples
It takes 24 hours—one day—for one complete rotation of Earth. How long would it take for the Sun to strike every location on the equator if Earth did not rotate on its axis? a. never b. one season c. 24 hours ...

ConcepTest: Spreading Rate of Spreading Center part of Examples
Scientists collect rock samples of the oceanic crust from a location that is 10 km from a spreading center. (1 km = 1000 m; 1 m = 100 cm; 1 cm = 10 mm.) The sampled rocks were found to be 200,000 years old. What ...

ConcepTest: Magnetic Inclination part of Examples
The diagram below shows the magnetic inclination determined for three lava flows preserved in a cliff. (Assume that Earth's magnetic field was in the same orientation as it is today.) What happened to the ...

ConcepTest: Worldwide Applications of Tectonic Theory #1 part of Examples
Review the map of the plates below and identify which two locations are moving farther apart due to plate motions? a. B & C b. F & G c. D &H d. E & M

ConcepTest: Age of Red Sea Crust part of Examples
The floor of the Atlantic Ocean is approximately 20 times wider than the Red Sea basin. Predict the approximate age of the oldest oceanic crust below the Red Sea. a. 500,000 years b. 10 million years c. 50 million ...

ConcepTest: Magnetic Inclination in Lava part of Examples
Two lava flows formed at the same location on a plate, 90 million years apart. The plate migrated 500 km northward in the time between the formation of the first and second lava flows. Scientists sampled rocks from ...

ConcepTest: Changing Magnetic Inclination part of Examples
The location of the magnetic North Pole migrated slowly northward over the last century. Assuming that you live in North America, how did magnetic inclination readings of your city change between 1904 and 2004? a. ...

ConcepTest: Oceanic Floor Width #2 part of Examples
Two ocean basins of identical size are almost surrounded by continents. The oceanic lithosphere below Ocean A is bordered by plate boundaries. The sea floor under Ocean B has a plate boundary running along its ...
