The three principal internal sources of heat for the terrestrial planets are; accretion, differentiation, radioactivity. The first two mainly occur during the planets formation. Accretion
Convection, conduction, and
Temperature, pressure, and radioactive decay Since only one answer includes radioactive decay, e) but accretion, differentiation, conduction, and convection are not heat sources Source
Radioactivity. It is thought that differentiation (heavy elements sinking to the core, kinetic and gravitational potential energy to thermal energy) is long over with as is the majority
