 Question 226911: Formula: M=log(A/Ao)*o should be a subscript**. Magnitude of an earthquake on the Richter scaleis based on A, measurement of a seismic wave, and Ao, the measurement of a seismic wave of a level zero earthquake with the same epicenter. An earthquakewas recorded which was 7,943,282 times more powerful than a reference level zero earthquake. What is the magnitude of this earthquake?Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15646)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Formula: M=log(A/Ao)*o should be a subscript**. Magnitude of an earthquake on the Richter scale is based on A, measurement of a seismic wave, and Ao, the measurement of a seismic wave of a level zero earthquake with the same epicenter. An earthquake was recorded which was 7,943,282 times more powerful than a reference level zero earthquake. What is the magnitude of this earthquake? Wouldn't just be: : M = log(7943282) M = 6.9 on the Richter scale
