A fault is a crack in the earth's crust resulting from the movement of the two plates. A divergent boundary is a fault where the two plates are moving away from each other.
Getting back to the example of cars, when two cars are next to each other, there are three possible ways for the cars to move with relation to each other. The first way two cars can move relative to each other is in divergent directions, like passing a car going the other way. Now, as plates pull apart, several things may occur.
Even without impacts, perhaps you can piece together what happened when a scratch shows up on the side of the car.
As tectonic plates of the earth, or giant pieces of the earth's crust, move and crash into each other, similar tell-tale signs show up to give us some ideas about how they move with relation to each other.
I’m a firm believer that it’s important to put effort into your ‘under-outfit’ so that when you go for lunch or a meeting you won’t take off your coat to a clown suit. I know everyones grumpy because it’s 20 degrees out but that shouldn’t be an excuse to start wearing your pajamas under your Marc Jacobs coat, okay?

The most popular aspect of the holiday celebration is the fireworks display.
I paired it with skinny black jeans and a comfy sweater for when you need to start “peeling the onion” you’re not going to end up looking like you got dressed in the dark.
July 4th is the day we celebrate the independence of our nation.
Americans celebrate by holding parades, having fun at a local park, and fireworks.
Convection currents are formed by hot magma near the core rising towards the surface, while cooler magma near the crust sinks, setting up a current that causes the plates to move.
These currents are the primary driving force behind plate movement.
