Why do earthquakes happen?

When the plates inside the earth collide with each other, the earth moves. Our earth is situated on 12 tectonic plates. When these plates collide with each other, energy is generated from them. Then these energies turn into earthquakes. Apart from this, every year the process of sliding continues in some plates of the earth. Even because of this, we continue to feel the tremors of earthquakes.

What is the center of an earthquake?

The place below the surface of the earth where the rocks collide or break, is called the epicenter. On the other hand, in the language of science, the place where the line connecting the center of the earth with the center of the earthquake cuts the surface of the earth is considered as the center of the earthquake.
