No there has never been an earthquake with a magnitude of 10.0 that has ever been recorded. The largest recorded to date was the magnitude 9.5 earthquake that occurred in Valdivia Chile in 1960.

What is the difference in strength between a 7.0 magnitude earthquake and a 9.0 magnitude earthquake?

-3.0 magnitude or if you want the ground motion: Each time the magnitude increases by one unit, the measured ground motion becomes 10 times larger. For example, an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.0 on the Richter scale will produce 10 times as much ground motion as an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0. Furthermore, an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 will produce 100 times as much ground motion (10 × 10) as an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.0.


What does magnitude measure in an earthquake?

the magnitude of an earthquake is the amount of energy released by the earthquake. The magnitude of an earthquake is measured by the Richter scale.

A magnitude 9 earthquake is 10,000x stronger than a magnitude 5.


What is the difference in strength between an earthquake whose Richter magnitude is 5 and an earthquake whose Richter magnitude is 7?

The Richter magniude scale is logorithmic. As such the size (amplitude) of the largest seismic waves produced by a magnitude 7 earthquake are 102 (or 100) times larger than those produced by a magnitude 5 earthquake. However the amount of energy released by a magnitude7 earthquake is 1000 times greater (102)^3/2 than a magnitude 5 earthquake and so it is likely to be much more destructive.


How much more energy is released from an earthquake of a magnitude of 5.0 to a magnitude of 4.0?

31.6 times more energy is released from a magnitude 5.0 earthquake than a magnitude 4.0 earthquake.
