Which of these events most likely happened during the formation of Earth's layers? The heaviest elements settled in the crust. The heaviest elements settled in the Earth's center. The lightest elements settled in the Earth's center. The lightest elements settled in the mantle.

    I think it is this one The heaviest elements settled in the Earth's center.

    Here are the layers of the Earth that I have, from the lithosphere to the inner core :3 Lirhospere (Lithospheric mantle): solid rigid; less than 1,300 degrees Celsius; 5 to 100 kilometers thick; peridotite (silicates rich in magnesium oxide) Asthenosphere (Asthenospheric mantle): solid plastic; greater than 1,300 degrees Celsius; about 650 kilometers thick; peridotite (silicates rich in magnesium oxide) Lower mantle: solid plastic; around 2,500 degrees Celsius; about 2,250 kilometers thick; peridotite (silicates rich in magnesium oxide) Gutenberg Discontinuity: boundary between the mantle and the outer core Outer core: liquid; around 4,500 degrees Celsius; around 2,200 kilometers thick; iron Inner core: solid; around 5,000 degree Celsius; around 1,250 kilometers thick; iron

    here are three compositional layers to Earth, as follows: Crust The outermost layer of Earth is rigid. Its thickness varies. Oceanic crust , or crust under the oceans, is generally thinner than the continental crust of landmasses. Mantle The mantle is the middle layer of Earth. Most of the mantle is rigid but plastic in nature. Plasticity is the ability of a substance under high temperature and pressure to flow, even when it is solid. The main zones of the mantle include the lithosphere and the asthenosphere. The lithosphere consists of the rigid upper mantle and the crust directly above it. The asthenosphere consists of the fluid lower mantle. Core The earth's core has two regions, the inner core and outer core. The inner core of Earth is thought to be solid iron. The outer core is molten. As Earth spins on its axis, rotation of the liquid outer core generates Earth's magnetic field.

    "The inner core of Earth is thought to be solid iron." sounds about right to me The heaviest elements settled in the Earth's center.

    @countonme123 now, here is my question, before you virtually kill meh again T_T Which of these statements best explains why the soil around a volcanic region is fertile? Volcanoes always contribute to flooding, which enriches the soil. Particles released by volcanoes contain sulfur, which is good for soil. Volcanoes aid in the formation of new rocks, which help form fertile soil. Particles released in the air by volcanoes fall to the ground and enrich the soil.
