6. As part of an earthquake modeling lab
experiment, Dale must determine the density of a
sample of rock. Density is determined by
dividing the mass of the sample by its volume.
Which pieces of laboratory equipment would be the
best choice for making the necessary
measurements? A beaker, graduated cylinder B
petri dish, balance C balance, graduated

7. What is the difference between plastic
deformation and elastic deformation? A In plastic
deformation, tectonic plates move on top of a
layer of plastic rock in elastic deformation,
they remain fixed. B In plastic deformation,
blocks move over one another in elastic
deformation, blocks slide past one another. C In
plastic deformation, earthquakes occur in
elastic deformation, they do not. D In plastic
deformation, rock is reshaped in elastic
deformation, rock is stretched to its breaking
point.

9. Which of the following statements best
describes elastic rebound? A Rock loses cohesion
and allows water to flow into newly opened
spaces. B Rock slips along a fault, releases
energy as seismic waves, and returns to its
original shape. C Rock changes shape, but does
not release significant amounts of energy. D Rock
becomes compacted under pressure and realigns its
mineral grains.

11. There are three types of faults strike-slip,
reverse, and normal. With what type of plate
motion is each associated? Describe how the
Earths crust is affected by each type of motion.
23
CRCT Preparation
Chapter 8
the following points
• Strike-slip faults occur with transform motion.
Blocks of the Earths crust slide horizontally
past one another.
• Reverse faults occur with convergent motion.
Blocks are pushed together and (usually) one
slides under the other.
• Normal faults occur with divergent motion.
Blocks are being pulled away from one another.

April 29, 2003. Menlo was either the
earthquakes focus or its epicenter. Tell which
