Question:

What is the Coriolis effect and how does it effect winds and ocean currents in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres?

Answer:

The Coriolis effect is the deflection of free-moving objects due to the rotation of the Earth. It changes the overall direction of winds and ocean currents. Due to Earth's rotation, winds and currents in the Northern Hemisphere will be deflected to the right, while winds and currents in the Southern Hemisphere will be deflected to the left.

Question:

How can textures of igneous rocks help determine where/how that rock formed?

Answer:

Typically igneous rock textures where mineral grains are visible (phaneritc texture) cooled slowly thus formed underground (intrusively). While igneous rock textures whose mineral grains are NOT visible (aphanitic texture) cooled rapidly thus formed at the surface (extrusively).

Question:

What are the two types of planets, how are they different, and describe how these certain types of planets are distributed throughout our solar system and why?

Answer:

Terrestrial (rocky) and Jovian (gas) planets. The terrestrial planets are composed of rock and are smaller in size. Terrestrial planets are located closer to the sun. Moving further away from the sun located beyond the asteroid belt are the Jovian gas giants. Jovian planets are much larger than terrestrial planets and composed mostly of gas. They are arranged in the solar system due to temperature differences during solar system formation.
