10. In the earth surface cross section shown below, four points are marked at different locations.
Rank the age of the crust, from lowest age to highest age, at these locations. [4]
11. Explain the ranking of the crust age for each point in question 10. Why is the crust youngest,
oldest, and in between for the locations in your ranking? [8]
A
B
C
A
D
12. Use the Seafloor Age figure on the following page to answer the questions below. The figure
includes dimension lines and labels with text indicating the distance between the arrow points.
For example, the distance between the two arrow points in the figure below is 5,000,000
meters.
a. For Location A
i. What is the sea floor age at each of the arrow points. [2]
ii. Calculate the rate at which the sea floor is spreading in this location in mm/yr.
b. For Location B
i. What is the sea floor age at each of the arrow points. [2]
ii. Calculate the rate at which the sea floor is spreading in this location in mm/yr.
c. For Location C
i. What is the sea floor age at each of the arrow points. [2]
ii. Calculate the rate at which the sea floor is spreading in this location in mm/yr.
13. The Figure below shows earthquake depth at the convergent boundary on the west coast of
South America. Red and Orange signify shallow depth earthquakes, Green signifies medium
depth earthquakes, and blue signifies deep earthquakes. Why does earthquake depth generally
increase from west to east? [5]
14. Why is granite rock speckled and granite gneiss rock banded? [4]
15. Define “Hardness” as it pertains to rocks [2]
16. A mineral is said to have what property if it breaks along a smooth, even surface? [2]
17. What is the term for the property of a mineral to resist bending or breaking? [2]
18. What is the difference between the color of a mineral and a mineral’s streak color? [2]
19. Explain the difference between clastic and non-clastic rocks. [3]
20. A soil column the same as that used in Lab 5 (Porosity of Soils Lab), Activity 1, is set up and usedto obtain the following data for a soil sample:

• Mass of soil in column: 107 g
• Volume of soil in column: 84 mL
• Initial volume of syringe: 100 mL
• Final volume of syringe after saturating soil column: 72 mL
• Volume of water that drains free after removing syringe: 10 mL
• Volume of water that can be sucked out with syringe after free-draining water is
• removed: 8 mL

a. Calculate the porosity of the soil. [3]
b. Calculate the % gravitational water based on the amount of water needed to
saturate the soil column. [3]
c. Calculate the % useable water based on the amount of water needed to
saturate the soil column. [3]
d. Calculate the non-useable water based on the amount of water needed to
saturate the soil column. [2]
21. Classify the soil texture of the following soils given two of three particle types. Determine the
percentage of the third particle type. Use the textural triangle on the next page. Your answer
for each should include two parts: texture of soil and percentage of the third particle type.

• 20% silt and 30% clay [3]
• 10% sand and 20% clay [3]
• 35% silt and 30% sand [3]
• 40% clay and 55% sand [3]
