Distinguish between converging and diverging tectonic plates in a table form?

The Earth's crust is broken up into several lithospheric or tectonic plates. These plates are constantly moving atop the Earth's mantle (semi-solid layer of molten rocks). Based upon their motion, tectonic plates are referred to as converging or diverging. Converging tectonic plates move towards each other and form convergent boundary. Diverging tectonic plates move away from each other and form divergent boundary.


What similarities are there between tsunamis and earthquakes?

generallly tsunamis r the aftr effects of earthquakes as the quivering of some plates under the earth wich balances the earth ,shaks an results in the imbalance of the movements of plate converging an diverging bcomes unrivallddd hence it results in the tsunami or strong beat of the wavs 2wards the shore ....... THE EARTHQUAKE IS THE RESULT OF THE PRESSURE RELEASE BETWEEN TWO TECTONIC PLATES; THIS CAUSES THE SEA CRUST TO MOVE OR VIBATE WHICH RESULTS IN A TSUNAMI

Diverging is pushing them away from each other and converging is bringing them together. It is really interesting so Google it to find out more. or try Wikipedia!


What is the difference between converging and diverging?

Converging is coming together while diverging is coming apart. I guess you could remember it by thinking, when you die, you go away. It's kind of dark, but that's how I remember.
