Before going on to see how atoms can link (bond) with each other, you need to look at atoms in a little more detail. Doubtless they are not like blocks of Lego! So what are they like?

However, you may already be familiar with some of the effects of one of these components - electrons. It is easy to do an experiment tha

4.3 Continental extension

Understanding how and why continental plates break apart is extremely important, as this step precedes the formation and development of all new ocean basins. A generalised model for the extension, rifting and separation of continental plates has been developed by examining currently active rifting environments, such as the East African and Red Sea rifts, and comparing these with mature basins, such as the Atlantic Ocean. The East African and Red Sea rifts are regarded as representing continen

4.6 Line graphs

These are probably the graphs that you will be most used to seeing on an everyday basis. Line graphs are most suitable when you are just comparing one value as it changes with another value.
