• Q6
If the asthenosphere is 3000 km thick and the conversion factor to draw the asthenosphere is 5 cm= 1000 km, how would you set up this problem?
3000 km/ 5 cm = 1000 km/x
3000 km/1000 km = X/ 5 cm
3000 km /x = 1000 km/ 5 cm

both have no effect on the area in which they happen.
both break down rock using chemicals.
both change the landscape of an area over time.
both break down rock using wind and water.

• Q15
Erosion and deposition are different because
only erosion can be caused by wind.
deposition is when rock moves, and erosion is when it stops moving.
erosion is the movement of rock and deposition is when rock stops moving.
only deposition can be caused by wind.
