The Richter scales grows by powers of 10, so an increase of 1 point means the strength of an earth quake is 10 times greater than the level before it; for example, and earthqu…ake registering 3.0 on the Richter scale is 10 times stronger than a quake that registered 2.0 (MORE)

The Richter Scale is open ended. There is no top limit. The highest recorded value so far was 9.5 for an earthquake in Chile in 1960. In prehistoric times, it is calculate…d that the chunk of material from outer space that hit the Yucatan Peninsula, possibly dooming the dinosaurs, would have caused a reading of 12.55 on the Richter Scale.

The Richter magnitude scale allows us to compare estimates of the energy released by an earthquake. An earthquake sends out compression waves from its epicentre. The more inte…nse the earthquake, the bigger the amplitude of these waves. The Richter scale measures the amplitude of the waves, but not in a linear way. Instead, it measures the logarithm of the amplitude. This means that an earthquake of magnitude 7 has waves that are 10 times smaller than an earthquake of magnitude 8 - which is the largest quake that can be measured in this way. A magnitude 0 quake is so tiny that you could never possibly feel it. The amplitude of the wave is quite closely related to the energy released, so that a magnitude 8 earthquake is 32 times as powerful as a magnitude 7, which is in turn 32 times as powerful as a 6, and so on.

The Richter scale assigns a magnitude number to an earthquake based on the maximum amplitude of the seismic waves as recorded on a seismometer and the distance of the seismome…ter station from the epicentre of the earthquake. (MORE)

the moment magnitude scale is used to measure earthquake magnitude-taking into account the size of the fault rupture, the rocks stiffness,and the amount of the movement of the… fault- using values that can be estimated from the size of several types of seismic waves. while a richter scale is a numerical scale used to measure the magnitude of an earthquake, using values based on the size of the earthquakes largest seismic waves.

20c + 5 = 5c + 65 Divide through by 5: 4c + 1 = c + 13 Subtract c from both sides: 3c + 1 = 13 Subtract 1 from both sides: 3c = 12 Divide both sides by 3: c = 4

Mercalli - measures the effects of an earthquake, the amount of damage done at a location Richter - measures the amplitude of the earthquake waves passing a location …as the logarithm of the ratio of the amplitude of those seismic waves to an arbitrary minor amplitude moment magnitude - measures the energy released by the earthquake Both the Mercalli and Richter measure the earthquake at an arbitrary location where the waves arrived and thus can and will vary depending on the observer, whereas the moment magnitude measures the earthquake at its origin and thus is a single value regardless of the observer.
