Describe the pacific plate-its current status and movement
Describe the pacific plate-its current status and movement. the answer is, The floor of the Pacific Ocean is divided into several plates. [ The largest one, the Pacific Plate is moving north west relative to the plate that holds North America, and relative to hot spots coming up through the mantle from below the plates (they generate islands like Hawaii). On the surface of the earth, nothing
can move along a straight line, instead the plates rotate around a point on the surface. The pacific plate rotates around a point south of Australia. Around Hawaii, the plate is moving at about 7 cm/year, or about as fast as finger mails grow. ]
