(Using MATLAB) The amount of energy E (in joules) that is released by an earthquake is given by:
where M is the magnitude of the earthquake on the Richter scale.
- (a) Determine the energy that was released from the Anchorage earthquake (1964, Alaska, USA), magnitude 9.2.
- (b) The energy released in Lisbon earthquake (Portugal) in 1755 was onehalf the energy released in the Anchorage earthquake. Determine the magnitude of the earthquake in Lisbon on the Richter scale.
