If the inner core reaches temperatures exceeding 6000c, in what phase/state of matter would these matters exist?
A. gas; the temperature is so great that the atoms vaporize
B. solid; the pressure is so great that the atoms are forced together
C. liquid; the temperature exceeds the melting pot
D. gas; the pressure keeps the atoms from changing to a liquid or solid form
