Plate Boundaries Ali Alsaeed

There are 3 Plate Boundaries:Divergent, Convergent, and Transform boundaries

Divergent Plate Boundaries

With divergent plate boundaries the plates move away from each other.And the stress that is similar to a divergent boundary is called tension.Some landforms are rift valleys and the mid-ocean ridge forming new crust.A real word example is the MId-Ocean Ridge.It was discovered in the 1950s.
This is the Mid-Ocean Ridge

Convergent Plate Boundaries

With convergent plate boundaries the plates are towards each other.The stress that is similar to a convergent plate boundary is called compression.One landforms is mountains.One real world example is Mount Everest.Mount everest formed 60 million years ago.It was discovered 1856.The rusult is that people started climbing this mountain.
This is Mount Everest

Transform Plate Boundary

With transform plate boundaries the plates slide past each other.The stress that is similar to transform plate boundary is called shear.Some landforms are earthquakes, and faults.One real world example is the san andreas fault.The fault was formed in 1906.It was formed by an earthquake that occurred in san andras.
This is the San Andreas Fault
