My son has to Compare and Contrast a normal fault and a reverse fault. Can you tell me if there is something he has left out in his answer? After reading in his science book this is what he wrote---- In comparing and contrasting a normal fault and a reverse fault it is known that tension forces cause normal faults and compression forces cause reverse faults.They both have the same structure but the blocks move in the opposite direction. In a normal fault the hanging wall slips down below the footwall,but in a reverse fault the hanging wall slides up and over the footwall.
Is there any important factors he is missing???
