the epicenter is above the focus and the focus is under the epicenter.


The epicenter of an earthquake is the point on the ground surface above the focus, which is the heart of the earthquake itself.


The focus of an earthquake is the place where an earthquake occurred along the fault underground, while the epicenter is the place directly above it where the seismic waves were felt.The focus is where an earthquake starts and the epicenter is where the earthquake hits the hardest.The focus of the earthquake is where the actual earthquake occurred and the epicenter is on the ground directly above the focus. The epicenter is used to say where the earthquake was in relation to places near where it occurred.


Can an earthquake begin at the epicenter


The difference between the Focus and the Epicenter is...... The Focus is pretty much where the earthquake starts but some people say it is the center of the earthquake. But moving on the Epicenter is right above the Focus but on the crust. I hope that answered your question!!
