Question details

6. An aftershock measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale occurred south of Christchurch, New Zealand in June 2011. The magnitude, M of an earthquake that is T times measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale can be modeled by the following function: M-log(T)+5.5. every one unit of increase on the Richter scale, the intensity of an earthquake incrcases more intense than an earthquake a) Graph the function, [show window] and determine how m uch more intense an earthquake measuring 7.7 that occurred on Queen Charlotte Islands in October 2012 was than the aftershock in New Zealand. a) 2 marks b) Determine the value of the function at T-3, explain the answer in the context of this question. b)
