Plate Boundaries By:Ivan Alvarez

This Is a Divergent Plate Boundary, A Divergent Plate Boundary Is When Two Tectonic Plates Are Moving Away From Each other
The Stress That Divergent Has Is Tension which is when it cant handle the pull.
Lakes and Volcanos happen at a divergent plate boundary
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge is a real world example. The Mid-Atlantic Ridge was formed 180 million years ago. An effect was that the Mid-Atlantic Ridge had an immensely long mountain.
This is a convergent boundary, a convergent boundary is when where two tectonic plates or fragments of the lithosphere move toward one another and collide.
Convergent boundary has compression stress and it is when the type of stress that occurs when an object is squeezed as when two tectonic plates collide.
Convergent boundaries form strong earthquakes, as well as volcanic mountains or islands, when the sinking oceanic plate melts. The third type is transform boundaries, or boundaries where plates slide past each other, forming strong earthquakes.

Examples of Convergent Boundaries. The West Coast of South America is a convergent boundary between the Nazca Plate and the South American Plate. The collision of this oceanic and continental plate was how the Andes Mountains were formed. Convergent boundaries can also form islands. And was formed in 1976.

Rocks under tension lengthen or break apart. Tension is the major type of stress at divergent plate boundaries. When forces are parallel but moving in opposite directions, the stress is called shear. Shear stress is the most common stress at transform plate boundaries.
Transform boundary has fault-bisected volcanos and causes earthquakes
The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 800 miles (1,300 km) through California. It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate, and its motion is right-lateral strike-slip (horizontal). it happened in 2012
