Question

The magnitude, M, of an earthquake is defined to be M=log l/s, where l is the intensity of the earthquake (measured by the amplitude of the seismograph wave) and S is the intensity of a “standard” earthquake, which is barely detectable. Which equation represents the magnitude of an earthquake that is 10 times more intense than a standard earthquake?

    Answer:

    M = Log (10S/S)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are told that the magnitude, M, of an earthquake is defined to be;

    M = Log l/S

    Where I is intensity and S is standard earthquake.

    Now, we want to find the magnitude of an earthquake that is 10 times more intense than a standard earthquake

    Since 10 times more intense than standard earthquake, it means that;

    I = 10S

    So plugging in 10S for I in the original equation for magnitude gives;

    M = Log (10S/S)
