Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is a geyser?

    • A.

      The steam from a cloud that bursts due to the extreme radiation that goes into the air.

    • B.

      A vent in Earth’s surface that periodically ejects a column of hot water and steam.

    • C.

      Steam and water that rises from the earth due to a volcanic eruption.

    • D.

      Jet stream that goes into the air and causes large cracks in the earth that cause water two burst through the cracks.

    Correct Answer
    B. A vent in Earth’s surface that periodically ejects a column of hot water and steam.
    Explanation
    A geyser is a vent in Earth's surface that periodically ejects a column of hot water and steam. It is not related to steam from a cloud or volcanic eruptions. It also does not cause large cracks in the earth. A geyser is specifically a natural phenomenon where water and steam are forcefully expelled from the ground.

    Where are Geysers seen most by tourists?

    • A.

      Yellowstone National Park.

    • B.

      The Grand Quarry of Canada.

    • C.

      The Geysers of Oklahoma city.

    • D.

      Le Fromage au France.

    • E.

      The Club Penguin Mines

    Correct Answer
    A. Yellowstone National Park.
    Explanation
    Geysers are seen most by tourists in Yellowstone National Park. This is because Yellowstone National Park is home to the largest concentration of geysers in the world, with over 500 geysers. The park's most famous geyser, Old Faithful, is a major attraction for visitors. The unique geological features and volcanic activity in Yellowstone create the perfect conditions for geysers to form, making it a hotspot for tourists interested in witnessing these natural wonders.

    What shoots out of Geysers?

    • A.

      A bubbly foam that is safe for humans to touch.

    • B.

      A steam and water mixture that shoots straight out.

    • C.

      A steam and water mixture that shoots out large rocks and occasionally fish.

    • D.

      Orange Juice.

    Correct Answer
    B. A steam and water mixture that shoots straight out.
    Explanation
    Geysers are natural hot springs that periodically erupt with a mixture of steam and water. This eruption is caused by the heating of groundwater by geothermal energy, resulting in the formation of steam. As the pressure builds up, the steam and water mixture shoots straight out of the geyser's vent, creating a powerful and dramatic display. This phenomenon is commonly observed in famous geysers like Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Are geysers dangerous?

    • A.

      Yes but only if you have a very bad skin condition.

    • B.

      No but only if you were a plastic like suite.

    • C.

      No.

    • D.

      Yes.

    Correct Answer
    D. Yes.
    Explanation
    Geysers can be dangerous due to the high temperatures and pressure of the erupting water. The sudden release of steam and hot water can cause severe burns and injuries to anyone nearby. Additionally, the unpredictable nature of geysers makes them potentially hazardous, as they can erupt unexpectedly and catch people off guard. It is important to exercise caution and follow safety guidelines when visiting geyser areas to avoid any accidents or harm.

  • 5. 

    How do Geysers Work?

    • A.

      Normal room temperature water under an erupting volcano seeps towards the earth's core and 2 years later erupts.

    • B.

      Extremely cold water, at exactly 33 degrees F flows into the geyser plumbing system heats up turns into steam and seeps out of the earth's cracks.

    • C.

      The hot water, circulating up from great depth, flows into the plumbing system of a geyser. Because this water is many degrees above the boiling point, some of it turns to steam instead of forming liquid pools.

    Correct Answer
    C. The hot water, circulating up from great depth, flows into the plumbing system of a geyser. Because this water is many degrees above the boiling point, some of it turns to steam instead of forming liquid pools.
    Explanation
    Geysers work by hot water circulating up from great depth and flowing into the plumbing system. This water is at a temperature above the boiling point, causing some of it to turn into steam instead of forming liquid pools. This build-up of steam eventually leads to a pressure release, resulting in the eruption of the geyser.

    Where do Geysers happen?

    • A.

      Only where the President wants it to.

    • B.

      Here, there, anywhere

    • C.

      Anywhere with the right conditions.

    Correct Answer
    C. Anywhere with the right conditions.
    Explanation
    Geysers occur anywhere with the right conditions. This means that geysers can be found in various locations around the world, as long as the necessary factors are present. Geysers form when underground water is heated by volcanic activity and then erupts through a vent in the Earth's surface. These conditions can be found in areas with geothermal activity, such as Iceland, Yellowstone National Park in the United States, and the Taupo Volcanic Zone in New Zealand. Therefore, geysers are not limited to specific locations but can occur wherever the appropriate conditions exist.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When you see steam erupting from underground is it always a Geyser?YES or NO.

    • A.

      YES ;)

    • B.

      NO :(

    Correct Answer
    B. NO :(
    Explanation
    Steam erupting from underground is not always a geyser. While geysers are a type of hot spring that periodically erupts with steam and water, there are other natural phenomena that can also produce steam, such as fumaroles or steam vents. These can occur in volcanic areas or areas with geothermal activity, where heat from the Earth's interior causes water to turn into steam and escape to the surface. Therefore, not all steam eruptions from underground are geysers.

    Do you now know more about Geysers?

    • A.

      YES!!!!! You have taught me well.

    • B.

      No!!!!!!! Teaching is not in your future.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. YES!!!!! You have taught me well.
    B. No!!!!!!! Teaching is not in your future.
    Explanation
    This question is a response-based question, where the answer options are direct responses to the question asked. The correct answer includes both possible responses to the question, indicating that the person has learned more about geysers and that teaching is not in their future.
