    • These rocks are broken into sediments to form sedimentary rocks
    • Both these rocks are converted into metamorphic rocks due to extreme heat and pressure
    • When rocks melt due to heat, new magma is formed. This process is called rock cycle.

Causes of decline of the Mughal Empire - Later Mughals:

  • Bahadur Shah, Aurangzeb՚s eldest son ascended the throne in 1707.
  • He was already 65 years old and died in 1712.
  • A bitter war of succession ensued in which Sayyid Brothers, Husain Ali and Abdullah; the two powerful nobles had turned into king makers.
  • Their conspiracies weakened the Empire. The later Mughals were incompetent and did not have the skills to rule over a vast empire.
  • In 1719, the Sayyid Brothers placed Muhammad Shah on the throne.
  • Under Muhammad Shah (1719 - 1748) province after province (the Deccan, Awadh, Bengal and Rohilkhand) slipped out of the Mughal control.
  • The Governors of these provinces became independent rulers.

26. Mention and explain the plate movements.


Plate Movement

  • Divergent plate movement: It occurs when two plates move away from each other. Cracks or gaps are created at the plate boundaries, through which magma from the mantle oozes out. When this magma solidifies, new crust is formed.
  • Convergent plate movement: It occurs when, due to forces of compression, two plates move towards each other and they collide. When two continental plates collide, they form mountains.
  • Transform plate movement: It occurs when two plates slide past each other. A tremendous friction occurs which leads to devastating earthquakes.
  • A rift valley is formed when the central block of land between two almost parallel faults, sinks down. The Great Rift Valley of Africa is the best example of a rift valley. The Narmada Valley in India, lying between the Vindhya and the Sapura ranges is also a rift valley.
