[SIT07-01] The Earth’s internal structure explained from a viewpoint of the condensed matter physics
Keywords:Mantle convection, Outer core, Inner core, Adiabatic compression, Degenerated state of electron, Jahn-Teller-Effect
The interactions among electronic orbits increase according to increase of depth in the Earth. The state of the substance is adapted to the situation by replacement of adjacent atoms caused by thermal motion. The interactions among those electronic orbits are possible to produce the lower energy state. The state with the low energy produces the extra energy. The extra energy contributes to the heat source of inner Earth. The energy of the heat together with substance is transported from the place with high temperature. That is the mantle convection. The mantle that is beneath the oceanic crust carries the heat more than the mantle under the continental plate. So, the magma emerges onto the ocean floor.
The core of Earth's interior structure can be explained depending on the nature of the substance. The liquidity with good electric conductivity in outer core of the Earth is explained by the degenerated state of electron that is occurred by a quantum resonance among overlapped orbits. The degenerated state of electron changes to the lower symmetry according to Jahn-Teller-Theorem. This state of the lowest energy corresponds to the solid state of inner core that makes possible to propagate a transverse wave.
The proposing concrete explanations are as follows. (1) Heat source of the mantle convection, (2) Heat source of volcano in the sea plate subduction zone, (3) Metallic state on the outer core of the Earth, (4) Solid state on the inner core of the Earth, (5) The formation of the solar system, and (6) The formation of terrestrial planets.
