What is the effect on the temperature with an increase in depth of the Earth?


Correct Answer : b ) temperature increases

Explanation :

The temperature increases with an increase in depth. However, the rate of increase of temperature from the earth’s surface towards the centre is not uniform.

The rate of increase is 1°C for every 32 m increase in depth for the first few km, and then going towards the centre the rate of increase of temperature declines.

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
