How do jupiter and saturn differ from uranus and neptune?

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are referred to as the Jovian Planets, or planets that are essentially big balls of gas, each are surrounded by many moons and rings.

Unlike Terrestrial Planets like the Earth, these planets lack solid surfaces and they have relatively small, dense cores that are surrounded by layers of gas, which is made mostly of hydrogen and helium. 

Jupiter and Saturn is different from Uranus and Neptune because the first pair is made almost entirely of hydrogen and helium and some hydrogen compounds, while the latter pair are made primarily of hydrogen compounds with smaller traces of hydrogen, helium, metal and rock.

As for the planets' interior, both Jupiter and Saturn have layers of metallic, liquid and gaseous hydrogen extending outward, topped with a layer of visible clouds.

On the other hand, Uranus and Neptune have cores of rock, metal, water, methane and ammonia. The layer surrounding the core is also made up of hydrogen that is covered with a layer of visible clouds.

With well-developed national parks that have made tourism a major growing economic sector, Costa Rica has led the region and the world in its biodiversity efforts. True or False?

Answers

Answer:

True

Explanation:

There are several factors that contribute to Costa Rica being so rich in biodiversity. These are:

1. Geographic position. Costa Rica is located in the Neotropics, which corresponds to the tropical areas of the American continent and, for this reason, receives more solar energy throughout the year.

2. Geological history. In the formation of the country, there have been several geological processes of volcanism and rising seabed (orogenesis), which have resulted in different types of soils, on which different types of plants grow.

3. Altitude. The mountainous system provides numerous and varied microclimates to which plants and animals adapt well.

4. Climate. The climate is determined by latitude, temperature, wind, air humidity, and precipitation. All these elements participate in the climatic characteristics of a specific place, and in our country they meet the ideal values for life, thus making us privileged in natural wealth.

When studying historical geology, which type of rock provides the most useful evidence for uncovering what occurred in the past? metamorphic
sedimentary
igneous
basalt
igneous
granite

Answers

Answer:

From the point of view of historical geology, sedimentary rocks (option B) have characteristics that allow to be the most useful to discover the events that occurred in the past.

Explanation:

Sedimentary rocks are the product of the lithification of the sediments of rocks originated by the weathering (meteorization) process, transported in the form of particles by environmental agents such as wind, rain, sea swell, among others.

The sediments that are deposited on the surface of the planet, over many years, go through a hardening process that turns them into rocks with heterogeneous material.  The characteristics that make sedimentary rocks the ideal material for historical geology studies are:

  • The formation process, where particles from past eras are found.
  • Its structure more or less accurately indicates the environmental conditions of the time they originated.
  • They contain information about their formation mechanism.
  • Fossils, also evidence of past times, are found in sedimentary rocks.

In order for geologists to reconstruct events and characteristics of the past, sedimentary rocks provide valuable information that contributes to this work.
