Underwater volcano

What occurs when one tectonic plate moves under another

Rounded underwater rise

Volcano whose summit rises above sea level
A single mountain created by volcanic activity is an island. Over thousands, perhaps even millions, of years, the sea bed accumulates lava from the ocean floor. As the lava enters the ocean, it cools and solidifies into rock. The volcano on the ocean floor rises a little bit with each eruption. One day, the undersea mountain’s summit was so elevated due to eruptions that it protruded above the water’s surface.

What binds bones and muscles together?

Joints

Ligaments

Tendons

Tendons
The connective tissues, known as tendons, transfer the mechanical force generated by muscle contraction to the bones. The tendon strongly connects to bone fibers at one end and muscle fibers at the other. Their enormous strength is essential for withstanding the strain caused by muscle contraction.
