Q: Give reason why the plates move in the interior of the Earth?

Asked by Pradeep 10th July 2017, 8:44 PM

Answer:
The tectonic plates move in the interior of the earth because they are placed above the asthenosphere which is a layer of semi molten rocks.  There is constant heat and radiation given off from the center of the Earth. That energy is what constantly heats the rocks and melts them. The tectonic plates are floating on top of the molten rock and move around.
