Plate boundaries and stress motions By: Joseph Silva

These are all diffrent types of mountains that are formed by plate boundries
Divergent plate boundry

The divergent plate boundary is when both plates are pulling away from each other forming rock like landmasses such as mountains.

A convergent boundary is when two plates collide allowing or making the more dense plate to slight below the other causing volcanoes and trenches to form.
A transform boundary is when two plates slide and or rub against each other allowing it to cause natural disaster such as earthquakes.
Now onto types of stress!
Shear stress is a stress state where the stress is parallel to the surface of the normal stress when the stress is perpendicular to the surface.
Compressional stress is when the surface pushes together.
Tensional stress is when there is tension between the two plates
Thanks for reading my project!
