How much does Earths inner core alter Earths development.

Apparently 84 M ago, Earth tilted be 12 degrees.

I the heavy metal core grows slightly lopsidedly could this have been a factor in the 'tilt'.


Very best wishes to all at live science,

Marjorie,

Further to the above [ Which is probably wrong anyway !]

Could the inner core development have any input to the precession of the equinoxes ?

again best wishes,

Marj.

According to the Second law of thermodynamics, any development of the planet's core will lead to a change in the energy of the system. It can get bigger or smaller. If there is more energy, then the system, obeying the principle of the Minimum of the system, will discharge excess energy through some process. If the energy becomes less, then the system will try to balance it through some process. If balancing fails, the system will die. As an example: The human body temperature is 37 degrees. Any change in temperature will lead to its balancing. If balancing fails, the person will die.

Thank you Miner, I'm sorry I have taken so long to reply.

You are right . the human body temperature has a very narrow range however I was asking if the way the core 'grows' [maybe not completely symmetrically]
might 'wobble' the surrounding planet.

Very best wishes,

Marj.
