What type of mountain is formed due to the collision of two different kinds of plates?
Volcanic mountains over hot spots in the mantle. Fault-block
At a convergence boundary during collision of two plates there could either be Subduction or Outcropping. Subduction occurs when the collision involves plates of different types and densities while the other happens when it involves similar plate types. Mountain ranges are formed, also Subduction Zones gives rise to Trenches.
the earth is made up of different plates and all the plates are different sizes, shapes and weight. there are 2 types of plates, oceanic and continental. a mountain is formed when 2 continental plates of the same weight collide into each other, it creates a mountain and the oceanic plates underneath them are pused down.
Mountains are formed by slow gigantic movements of the earth's crust. The earth is made up of six huge plates (a big piece of land). When one plate dashes against another with great force, the land in between the plates gets lifted up to form mountains. Many of the mountain ranges around the world has been formed due to the collision of two plates against one another.
The ural mountais formed as a result of the collision of Europe with asiathe urals are therefore most likely to be?
The Ural mountains formed as a result of the collision of Europe with Asia and are folded mountains. Fold mountains are mountain ranges that are formed when two of the tectonic plates that make up the Earth's crust push together at their border. The extreme pressure forces the edges of the plates upwards into a series of folds.
Mountains is a generic term which can include Volcanoes (which are formed by the eruption and cooling at the surface of molten magma) eg Mt Etna, Fold mountains which are formed by the destructive collision of Earth's tectonic plates - eg the Himalayas, Horsts which are formed by the action of faulting within continental plates - eg the Rwenzori Mountains, Erosion flowing uplift - eg Monument ValleyColorado and finally Impactors from space such as the…
Depends on the type of tectonic plate. If it is two continental plates, usually a mountain range will be formed and the plates will 'lock' together due to their thickness. The Indian sub-continent colliding with the eurasian plate is one example. If an oceanic plate is subducting under a continental plate an island arc can be formed or mountain range such as Japan and the Andies mountains respectively. This type is also where volcanoes will…
The most substantial will be from crustal folding at a collision boundary between two continental plates. An example is the Himalayas which have been pushed up in Asia by the collision of the Indian Plate. The Rocky Mountains of North America were similarly formed by shallow subduction of the Farallon and Kula oceanic plates.
