Weegy: The asthenosphere is the next layer within the mantle. It has the same chemical composition of the mesosphere but differing physical properties. [ In the asthenosphere, the balance between temperature and pressure is such that rocks have little strength. The rocks in the asthenosphere are weak and easily deformed, like butter or warm tar. The asthenosphere is also known as the "low velocity" zone of the mantle because seismic waves slow down as they pass through it. This property tells us that the asthenosphere is composed of partially molten rock slushlike material consisting of solid particles with liquid occupying spaces in between. Although the asthenosphere represents no more than six percent of the mantle, the mobility of this layer allows the overlaying lithosphere to move. continental ? that are interacting. ] (More)
