How do tectonic plates move?
The continental plates float around the oceanic plates, and this allows the tectonic plates to move around.
Volcanic eruptions force the tectonic plates to move from their respective position due to their explosive force.
Falling meteors shatter the earth’s crust, forcing the tectonic plates to move.
The plates are floating on the liquid part of the mantle, and this allows them to move.
