## Is the Juan de Fuca plate a convergent boundary?

This plate is moving northeastward relative to North America along a convergent plate boundary such that the Juan de Fuca plate is subducting beneath the North American plate at the Cascadia trench at an approximate rate between 9.8 and 13.8 feet per 100 years.

**What is an example of a convergent plate boundary?**

The Pacific Ring of Fire is an example of a convergent plate boundary. At convergent plate boundaries, oceanic crust is often forced down into the mantle where it begins to melt. Magma rises into and through the other plate, solidifying into granite, the rock that makes up the continents.

**What type of convergent plate boundary is Indonesian?**

Weak Tectono-Magmatic Relationships along an Obliquely Convergent Plate Boundary: Sumatra, Indonesia. The tectono-magmatic relationships along obliquely convergent plate boundaries, where strain partitioning promotes strike-slip structures along the volcanic arc, are poorly known.

### What type of plate boundary is the Sierra Nevada?

The Sierra Nevada are the eroded remnants of the volcanic arc developed when the Farallon Plate subducted beneath the continent. The San Andreas Fault and Queen Charlotte Fault are transform plate boundaries developing where the Pacific Plate moves northward past the North American Plate.

**What is an example of a convergent?**

Examples of continent-continent convergent boundaries are the collision of the India Plate with the Eurasian Plate, creating the Himalaya Mountains, and the collision of the African Plate with the Eurasian Plate, creating the series of ranges extending from the Alps in Europe to the Zagros Mountains in Iran.

**Why do earthquakes occur in Indonesia?**

Indonesia is prone to earthquakes because it lies on the so-called Ring of Fire – a line of frequent quakes and volcanic eruptions on the Pacific rim. The Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 killed 170,000 people on the Indonesian island of Sumatra after a quake of magnitude 9.1.

## Is the Eurasian plate convergent or divergent?

The boundary between the North America Plate and the Eurasian Plate is an example of a divergent boundary at a mid-ocean ridge.

**What is the example of convergent?**

**What is the code for convergent plate boundaries?**

Letters in ovals are codes for NPS sites at modern and ancient convergent plate boundaries. Modified from “Parks and Plates: The Geology of our National Parks, Monuments and Seashores,” by Robert J. Lillie, New York, W. W. Norton and Company, 298 pp., 2005, www.amazon.com/dp/0134905172.

### How to prove the theorem of absolute convergence?

You might guess from what we’ve seen that if the terms get small fast enough to do the job, then whether or not some terms are negative and some positive the series converges. Theorem 11.6.1 If ∑ n = 0 ∞ | a n | converges, then ∑ n = 0 ∞ a n converges. Proof.

**Which is the strongest type of absolute convergence?**

and so \\(\\sum {{a_n}} \\) is the difference of two convergent series and so is also convergent. This fact is one of the ways in which absolute convergence is a “stronger” type of convergence. Series that are absolutely convergent are guaranteed to be convergent.

**Is the \\ ( P \\ )-Series test absolute convergent?**

This series is convergent by the \\(p\\)-series test and so the series is absolute convergent. Note that this does say as well that it’s a convergent series. In this part we need to be a little careful. First, this is NOT an alternating series and so we can’t use any tools from that section.
