What is the reason for Earthquakes?


The earth is mainly composed of four layers, the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust. 

The crust and upper mantle are called lithospheres. 

This 50-kilometer thick layer is divided into several sections, known as tectonic plates. 

These tectonic plates keep moving from their place, but when there is too much movement in them, an earthquake occurs.


The reason for plates colliding?


Actually, these plants rotate very slowly. In this way, they move 4-5 mm from their place every year. 

If a plate moves near another plate, it goes away. In such cases, sometimes they collide. Because of which earthquake occurs. 

The greater the depth of an earthquake, the lower its intensity on the surface.
