What is the difference between a volcano and a mountain?

Answer

The difference between a volcano and a mountain is that a volcano is an opening in the earth's crust where molten rock, rock fragments and hot magma (lava) erupts whereas a mountain is land mass that rises steeply from the area surrounding it. Both rise from the earth's surface but volcanoes have openings at their core.
