Who is the magnitude scale for earthquakes named after?

The local or Richter magnitude scale is named after Charles Francis Richter an American seismologist and geophysicist. Some people use the title Richter-Gutenberg scale to acknowledge the contribution to the scale of Charles Richter's colleague, Beno Gutenberg a fellow geophysicist at the California Institute of Technology. it is worth noting however that geophysicists / seismologists use the moment magnitude scale in place of the Richter magnitude scale when possible as it is more reliable for large magnitude earthquakes (greater than 6.9) and for earthquakes that occur a long distance away from the nearest seismometer station (greater than 600 km).


Who invented the Richter Scale and when?

It was initially devised in 1935 by the American seismologist Charles F. Richter (1900-1985). Often overlooked is the fact that the scale was developed in collaboration with his colleague (a German seismologist) named Beno Gutenberg at the California Institute of Technology.For the source and more detailed information concerning this subject, click on the related links section (Answers.com) indicated below this answer box.

What was the difference between an American million and an English million?

There is no difference between the long scale million and a short scale million. There is a difference between the billion in these two scales. The American use the short scale so 1 billion to them is 1,000,000,000 or 10^9. We used to use the long scale so 1 billion is 1,000,000,000,000 or 10^12. It should be noted that for simplicity reasons especially with currency the UK have switched to the short scale system as well.


How do you turn petroleum into energy?

You don't "turn" it into energy; petroleum HAS stored energy (chemical energy).However, you can turn it into ANOTHER TYPE OF ENERGY; usually this is done by burning the petroleum, and using it to drive machinery. Since burning fuels is wasteful (the efficiency is limited, in theory, to the Carnot efficiency of a heat engine), other options are being explored, such as chemical reactions in a fuel cell. But such technology is not yet used on a large scale.
