Cairan Bumi

Liquid Outer Core of EarthScientists used waves generated by earthquakes to determine that the outer core of the earth is liquid. Earthquakes generate P-waves and S-waves within the earth. Shadows occur on the opposite side of the earth from the earthquake epicenter because the outer core reflects S-waves, and bends P-waves. S-waves are reflected because they cannot travel through liquids, and they cast a larger shadow than the bent P-waves. Geologists and seismologists determined the size of the outer core by using the 154-degree arc of the S-wave shadow and measurements taken on the surface of the earth.© Microsoft Corporation.
