E ndogenic  Forces
The forces coming from within the earth and causing horizontal and vertical movements are known as endogenetic forces. It is these movements which lead to land upliftment and subsidence, folding and faulting, earthquakes and volcanism, etc. endo genetic movements are responsible for giving birth to major relief features such as mountains, plateaus, plains, valleys, etc. these endogenetic movements fall into two major catergories, on the basis of intensity.
 

E xogenic forces

Exogenic (also known as exogenetic) refers to external processes and phenomena that occur on or above the Earth 's surface. Comet and meteoroid impacts, the tidal force of the Moon and radiation from the Sun are all exogenic. Weathering effects and erosion are also exogenic processes.

More Answers

FORCES: The variety in types of landforms on the earth is the end result of two types of forces working simultaneously  and continuously both inside and outside on its surface.

endogenic forces: the forces which act in the interior of the earth are called internal or endogenic  forces.

exogenic forces:the forces that work on the surface of the earth are called as external or exogenic forces

Earths movements are divided on the basis of the forces which cause them. The ones that work on the Earths surface are called exogenic forces while the ones that work in the Earths interior are called endogenic forces. The erosional and depositional activities of wind and water are examples of exogenic forces. Earthquakes and volcanoes are examples of endogenic forces.

the forces that occur deep inside the earth's crust are called endogenic forces
