well basically there are many different types of equipment used to measure and earthquake, but the most common is the 'richter scale'. The richter scale is just a pendulum that gives an earthquake a scale for example a low power earthquake would be a 2.5, a medium would be a 5-6 and a high of 8, very high would be 9 and above. To give you an idea the biggest ever recorded earthquake was the great chilliean earthquake wich measures an impressive 9.5 on the richter scale.
