Why do earthquakes happen?
The earth is mainly made up of four layers. Inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The crust and the upper mantle core are called the lithosphere. Now this 50 kilometer thick layer is divided into several sections called tectonic plates. That is, the upper surface o
f the earth is made up of 7 tectonic plates. These plates are never stable, they keep on moving continuously, when these plates move towards each other, they collide. Sometimes these plates also break. Due to their collision, a large amount of energy is released, due to which there is a stir in the area. Sometimes these tremors are of very low intensity, so they are not even felt. While sometimes they are of such high intensity, that the earth explodes.
