If the volume of water is small, it is called a cascade; if large, it is called a cataract. Waterfalls are usually formed when rivers flow from an area where there is hard rock to one that can be more easily eroded by the water. The softer rock downstream is gradually worn down. This creates a ledge or cliff down which the river must flow in order to continue its course. This is what happened in creating Niagara Falls, for example. The falls began when the Niagara River eroded soft rocks that were under beds of strong limestone. In this way it made an overhanging cliff where the river now plunges 167 feet into the lower part of the valley. In .some cases waterfalls are created where streams flow over hard rocks that cut across their channels. The hard material then becomes like a dam, so that the water has to fall over it into the valley below. This is how the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River, in Wyoming, were formed. The highest falls in the world are the Angel Falls in Venezuela, which are 3,212 feet high. They also have the longest uninterrupted drop, 2,648 feet. The largest volume of water of any waterfall is in the Guaira Falls on the Brazil-Paraguay border. They discharge over 470,000 cubic feet of water per second. In the past, many waterfalls were used to turn millwheels. Today many of them have been harnessed to generate hydroelectric power. IF I POM'T, SOMEONE ELSE WILL...
