  1. 1. EARTHQUAKES AN INTERACTIVE QUIZ
  2. 2. <ul><li>What is an earthquake? </li></ul><ul><li>A. An earthquake is the shaking and vibration of </li></ul><ul><li>the Earth's crust due to movement of the Earth's </li></ul><ul><li>plates. </li></ul><ul><li>B. An earthquake is the eruption of molten rock from </li></ul><ul><li>inside the Earth's crust. </li></ul><ul><li>C. An earthquake is the creation of new land formed by </li></ul><ul><li>molten rock pushing through gaps in the Earth's crust . </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>At what sort of plate boundaries might </li></ul><ul><li>earthquakes take place? </li></ul><ul><li>Constructive plate boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Destructive plate boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Conservative plate boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>Conservative and destructive plate boundaries </li></ul><ul><li>All plate boundaries </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>What causes earthquakes? </li></ul><ul><li>A. Earthquakes are caused when tension is released inside the </li></ul><ul><li>Earth's crust. </li></ul><ul><li>B. Earthquakes are caused when humans extract too much material </li></ul><ul><li>from the Earth's crust. </li></ul><ul><li>C. Earthquakes are caused when the Earth moves closer to the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>D. Earthquakes are caused when it's very hot in the middle of </li></ul><ul><li>summer. </li></ul><ul><li>E. Earthquakes are caused when plate boundaries pull </li></ul><ul><li>away from each other. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The point inside the Earth where the pressure </li></ul><ul><li>is released is called the: </li></ul><ul><li>Epicentre </li></ul><ul><li>Aftershock </li></ul><ul><li>Focus </li></ul><ul><li>Cone </li></ul><ul><li>Inner core </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The point on the Earth's surface that is directly </li></ul><ul><li>above an earthquake is called the: </li></ul><ul><li>Epicentre </li></ul><ul><li>Aftershock </li></ul><ul><li>Focus </li></ul><ul><li>Cone </li></ul><ul><li>Inner core </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Energy released by an earthquake is in the form </li></ul><ul><li>of: </li></ul><ul><li>Rocks </li></ul><ul><li>Magma </li></ul><ul><li>Shakes </li></ul><ul><li>Seismic waves </li></ul><ul><li>Nuclear </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>A seismometer measures what? </li></ul><ul><li>The damage caused by an earthquake </li></ul><ul><li>The distance of an earthquake from the focus to the epicentre </li></ul><ul><li>How big a volcano is </li></ul><ul><li>The vibrations caused by an earthquake </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The strength or magnitude of an earthquake is </li></ul><ul><li>measured using what? </li></ul><ul><li>Sonar equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Richter scale </li></ul><ul><li>Vanderlay chart </li></ul><ul><li>Barometer </li></ul><ul><li>Shakagraph </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>What is an aftershock? </li></ul><ul><li>A. Aftershocks are the nightmares and other long-lasting effects that </li></ul><ul><li>earthquakes have on people who have experienced them. </li></ul><ul><li>B. Aftershock is the medical condition where earthquake victims always </li></ul><ul><li>imagine the earth is shaking, for years after a quake. </li></ul><ul><li>C. Aftershocks are the smaller earthquakes that follow the main </li></ul><ul><li>earthquake. </li></ul><ul><li>D. Aftershocks are earthquakes that take place before the main </li></ul><ul><li>earthquake </li></ul><ul><li>E. An aftershock is the spot on the surface of the Earth's crust that is </li></ul><ul><li>located immediately above the epicentre of the earthquake </li></ul>
