Question and answer
Q: The main difference between the Richter scale and the Mercalli intensity scale is _____.
A: The Richter Scale is the best known scale for measuring the magnitude of earthquakes. The magnitude value is proportional to the logarithm of the amplitude of the strongest wave during an earthquake. [ A recording of 7, for example, indicates a disturbance with ground motion 10 times as large as a recording of 6. The energy released by an earthquake increases by a factor of 30 for every unit
increase in the Richter scale. Scales for measuring earthquakes... The Richter Scale is the best known scale for measuring the magnitude of earthquakes.
