Best Answer

the energy is stored before the earthquake in the exinstle manner of the earthquake. The exinstile manner is below the earthquake where the rumble happens.

It is stored in the form of elastic strain (also known as elastic potential energy) in the rocks of the crust as they deform under stress.

Before the energy is converted into electricity it is stored in lava, then when its electricity it is stored in the national grid.


Do after shocks of an earthquake happen within a week?

It depends! Depending upon the built-in energy at the epicenter before and after the earthquake (main shock), and/or the energy (especially stored at some weaker places) generated after the earthquake, aftershocks of an earthquake range in their time.For more details, refer: http://www.answers.com/library/Wikipedia-cid-1349 Aftershock

What is energy stored in the nucleus of an atom called?

Binding energy. and some is even stored in particles, such as the neutron which has a half-life of about ten minutes before it disintegrates with the release of energy.


Does tectonic plate size effect earthquake magnitude?

Tectonic plate size does affect earthquake magnitude. Earthquakes happen when one plate slides above/below another plate, to do this it takes massive amounts of convection energy from the mantle to move the plate above. The larger the mass of the plate, the more energy is needed to move it which means that large plates have a lot of stored up energy in them before the quake in question. When the energy is released the plate boundary snaps releasing all the built up energy. As there was so much energy stored in the plate the more is released, causing a larger, more devastating earthquake.
