When tectonic plates collide?
When tectonic plated collide they create an earthquake. It happens by them colliding and shaking each other forming a big movement.
When tectonic plates come together..... If it is two continental plates, when they collide the plates will push up on each other and form mountains. When oceanic and continental plates collide, the oceanic plate will sink under the continental plate because it is colder and denser than the continental plate. When two oceanic plates collide, it will form under water mountain ranges. I hope this helped!
Earthquakes are caused by transform plates, which are two plates sliding past each other. Volcanoes are caused by convergent plates, which is when crust is consumed. Mountains are caused by collisional plates, which is when two land masses collide. the tectonic plates collide and the ground (earth) pushes upwards and the molten rock pushes up too and causes a volcano to form
