Earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. Click To EditWe are going to be talking about Earthquakes. An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of stored energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves.

There is chemistry in an earthquake, Energy transfer, which is the conversion of one form of energy into another, or the movement of energy from one place to another. Energy transfer is released when an earthquake happens, the energy travels through the faults and rocks causing the movement and rumble of the quake.
Thermochemisrty is seen in this energy transfer. Heat energy is released, Heat energy associates with friction on the fault slip surface when an earthquake occurs. Chemical potential energy occurs when seismic waves shake the ground.
