The plates move farther away from each other . The stress for a divergent boundary is tension . Some of the landforms are the mid-ocean ridge , volcanoes , and creating new crust . Places where this actually takes place is in mid-atlantic ridge , and east pacific rise .
this is the mid - atlantic ridge . As you can see the plates have moved away from each other
this is an example of divergent boundary
These plates collide together while they move closer to each other . Convergent boundaries have shear stress . Some of the landforms are mountains , himalayas , and volcanic mountains . One real world event of convergent boundary is the himalayan mountains that formed about 40 to 50 years ago .
These are the himalayan mountains .
This is an example of convergent and how the plates collide
Transform is when plates slide past each other . Some of the features / landforms are earthquakes . Transform has compression stress . A real world event is the san andreas fault that happened in 1857 and 1906 .
this is the san andreas accident
this is what the plates do
