Difference between a Young and Old Mountain?

Answer

There are some differences between a young and an old mountain. To be classified as a mountain, the mountain must be at least 2,000 feet tall. Old mountains have more erosion than young mountains. The erosion wears the rocks away, revealing newer surface material underneath. They also have less peaks and are more rounded at the top. Young mountains are taller than old mountains. They have more jagged peaks. They may appear older, because they have less surface erosion.
