Question

What name is given to the heat energy obtained from the  hot rocks inside the earth ?



    Solution

    The correct option is

    Geothermal energy



    Geothermal energy is the energy obtained from the earth(geo) from the hot rocks present inside the earth. It is produced due to the fission of radioactive materials in the earth’s core which results in intense heating . The areas that absorb the heat the most  are called hot spots. They cause water entrapped  deep inside the earth to form super heated steam. As more and  steam is formed, it gets compressed at high pressure and comes out in the form of hot springs . This  produces geothermal power.
