What does a divergent boundary form?
When two plates are moving away from each other, we call this a divergent plate boundary. Along these boundaries, magma rises from deep within the Earth and erupts to form new crust on the lithosphere. Most divergent plate boundaries are underwater and form submarine mountain ranges called oceanic spreading ridges.
What is an example of a divergent?
The definition of divergent is things that move in different directions or that are far apart from each other. An example of divergent are the ideologies of a liberal democrat and a conservative republican. An example of divergent is a path that splits off into two different directions.
