geography the relation between plate tectonics and mountain ranges

hello its my first time using the website but i really need help on the the question isExplain the relationship between plate tectonics and mountain ranges, such as the Alps, Andes or the Himalayas. Use labelled diagrams in your answer to support the points being made.
in the collision boundary, two continental plates move in opposite directions towards each other. Due to both of them being of the same height and weight, the land buckles upwards and forms mountains. As they continue to collide, the mountains will get taller.
