What are internal and external forces which sculpt the surface of the earth?

Forces like earthquake and volcanoes occurs beneath the earth’s crust. Forces like weathering, erosion, etc. are responsible for the changes on the earth’s surface. Forces are of two types: Endogenic (Internal) and Exogenic (External) forces.

What are some examples of very fast changes?

Some changes are fast and immediately observable, such as earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding, and landslides. Other changes are slower and occur over a longer period of time, such as weathering and erosion. These gradual processes shape landforms with water, ice, wind, living organisms, and gravity.

What are the examples of physical change and chemical change?

Examples of chemical changes are burning, cooking, rusting, and rotting. Examples of physical changes are boiling, melting, freezing, and shredding. Many physical changes are reversible, if sufficient energy is supplied. The only way to reverse a chemical change is via another chemical reaction.
