Question and answer
Q: What type of stress is placed on a normal fault? Reverse fault? Strike-slip fault?
A: Normal fault have the same type of force on each fault and the tension is released whenever the vertical stress (which mostly is because of gravity) is more than horizontal stresses, normal faults can be created or activated. [ Reversed faults is produced by compression. Strike-slip fault is produced by transverse stress. ]
