For geography homework I have to make Dominoes of Richter Scale to Seismograph. In other words I’m making it so one side of it will be a Richter measurement and the other will be the same in Seismic measurement, but I cannot find anything showing this (E.G. 6.0 On the Richter scale = Whatever on the Seismograph) someone give me a link or some help?

well on yahoo, it says "Storm clouds create dramatic sight

Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are the subject of amazing images taken around the world."

all over the world? whoa.

also, those earthquakes in Chili and Haiti? apparently there were like over 10 more that they didn’t even bother mentioning that happened within the same year all about a 7.0 or higher on the Richter scale.

i know theres a bad economy right now but this is a VERY messed up movie that probably shouldn’t have been made…

north korea might start a nuclear war… uh oh?

"N. Korea tensions, collapse plans revealed
Among other surprises, leaks show the regime’s ties to close ally China are not what the world thought"

theres a new space/technology race that is making everyone go insane with "inventive technology sciencyness"

and pretty much the mayan calender is not the only one that ends in 2012.

a bunch of other ones including a chinese version were also found to end in 2012.

how did they all copy off of each other?

im not saying 2012 is the end because alot of times people have said that "oh its Y2k just because its 2000 its going to explode" thats just illogical…

2012 is the only end of the world scenario with actual scientific evidence that some really weird stuff is going to happen and earth is going to be in a very weird place in 2012, or something like that.

so im just wondering… is 2012 the end of the world? any info?
thats an interesting way to put it, but im talking about some solid*well, "evidence-ish" that is hinting at unusual stuff happening to the world and its inhabitants.
wow kyle you have no rhythm… LOL

but hey, how do you KNOW what im talking about? the answer: u dont.

A) The Richter scale allows us to make predictions of earthquake damage.
B) Each step of the scale represents a 30-fold increase in energy released.
C) The Richter scale measures the magnitude of an earthquake.
D) Earthquakes with equal ratings do not have the same damage.

If one earthquake has a magnitude of 5 on the richter scale and a second earthquake has a magnitude of 6 compare the intensities of the two earthquakes.

I know this has something to do with logarithims and the answer is 60 DB, I just dont know how to arrive at the answer, thanks.

Many powerful earthquakes are followed later by less-powerful earthquakes called “aftershocks.”
If an earthquake measures 6 on the Richter scale and is followed by an aftershock that measures 4, how
many times more energy was released in the original earthquake as compared to the aftershock?

i need to know an earthquake that happend at
and 7
on the richter scale
thank you guys xxx
i’ve already typed them into google sozzy xx

what does a seismograph have to do with the Richter scale?

Richter Scale:

a. 5.0 – 5.9 ~ Small

b. 6.0 – 6.9 ~ Moderate

c. 7.0 – 7.9 ~ Major

d. 8.0 – 8.9 ~ Great

I found this in my mom’s book on natural disasters. It’s less than 1 year old…can a 5 earthquake cause damage? Please explain.
Have any of you been through an earthquake that was rated around a 5 on the richter scale? What was it like?

How are the Richter Scale and the moment magnitude scale similar? How are they diffrent?

I only know that Richter scale 3 will shake 0.1 mm at a distance of 100 kilometer. It increases by ten fold for each Richter scale magnitude. Give example how it will vary according the distance of epicenter. They say it is Inverse Square of the distance. Please explain with a model calculation. If an earthquake is measured from a distance of 2000 kilometers from epicenter and if the magnitude is 9 in Richter scale what will be the maximum shaking. Will the S wave pass through sea water.?
