I think it is this one The heaviest elements settled in the Earth's center.
@countonme123 give me one sec :) gonna see if the info I have matches XD
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.
@countonme123 with the information I posted, would u change ur answer?
"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 thank u ^O^
oh wait, ur right! XD I just read it wrong :P thanks so much! :D
@charlotte123 no probs 123 power!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@countonme123 ditto XD
@countonme123 can ya help me with one more question please? :)
@charlotte123 hmm what will you do for me? lol
@countonme123 I can grant you a virtual wish and give ya a medal ^-^ seeing that that is the only thing I can do XD
@charlotte123 lol ok. i just ask people that sometimes. you never know what they will say. ps: what is a virtual wish?
@countonme123 well, seeing that I can't grant you a wish for real, I can grant u it virtually :D it's like, you wish for a virtual cookie, I hand u a virtual cookie ~(^_^)~
@charlotte123 ok i wish for 123 katrillion-jillion virtual dollars!
@countonme123 ur wish is granted :D *hands countonme123 123 katrollion-jillion virtual dollars* ^-^
but wait....u didn't answer my question yet :O XD
muawhahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!
▄︻̷̿┻̿═━一 BANG!!!
*virtually dies* X_X
and I am alive ~(*O*)~
muheheh :3
@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.
Particles released in the air by volcanoes fall to the ground and enrich the soil. Particles released by volcanoes contain sulfur, which is good for soil. its one of these dangit im not sure
@countonme123 it is hard T^T
and I was thinking the same thing!
find out if volcanoes put out sulfur
@countonme123 couldn't really find anything :O
it does say that volcanic gases like sulfur dioxide can cause global cooling though :P
:(
@countonme123 shall I ene minee mo this one? D:
im actually leaning on this Particles released in the air by volcanoes fall to the ground and enrich the soil.
@countonme123 okay :3 wish me luck! :D but since I can't give ya a medal, since you can only give 1 medal per page per person, would u like me to post this question and close this? all u have to do is copy ur answer and post it there ^-^ If u want the medal XD
@countonme123 do u? :3
