Compare and Contrast the Three Main Types of Volcanoes?

Answer

There are various differences that can be found when one compare and contrasts the three main types of volcanoes. These type of volcanoes are known as cinder cone, shield, and stratovolcano. The differences between them are shape, size, what they are made of, and the type of eruptions they produce. Cinder cone volcanoes are conical in shape, made of cinders, and have explosive eruptions. Shield volcanoes form with gentle slopes, are made of fluid lava, and erupt quietly. A stratovolcano has lower slopes, is made of lava and pyroclastics, and like cinder cone volcanoes have explosive eruptions.
