What are the Three Types of Faults?

A fault is a crack in the rock that is deep in the earth that can slip and cause motion. This crack creates two parts and can create three types of faults. If the two parts start to move away from each other this creates a divergent type of fault. It the two parts start to come together, this creates a convergent type of fault and if the two parts come so close together that they actually slide past one another it is called a transform type of fault.
