Question: 9 the richter scale is used to measure the magnitude...

Question details


9. The Richter scale is used to measure the magnitude of an earthquake. The magnitude, R, is given by the equation R - 0.65log(0.39)+1.45, where Eis the energy (measured in kilowatt-hours) released by the earthquake. Determine the amount of energy released by an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 Part I: Rewrite the equation for the magnitude of an earthquake, using the magnitude of 7.5 given in the problem. (2 points)
Part lI: Simplify the problem so that it is written in the form b e loge (4 points) Part IlIl: Solve the problem for E the energy released by the earthquake.(6 points)
