• # question_answer From which of the following processes is the energy responsible for generation of endogenic forces derived? 1. Radioactivity                               2. Rotational and tidal friction 3. Primordial heat from the origin of the Earth Select the correct answer using the codes given below. A)  Only 1              B)  1 and 3             C)  2 and 3 D)  All of these

Correct Answer: D

Solution :

[d] The energy responsible for generation of endogenic forces is mostly generated by radioactivity, rotational and tidal friction and primordial heat from the origin of the Earth, This energy is due to geothermal gradients and heat flow from within induces diastrophism and volcanism in the lithosphere.
