1. Which statement best describes the Richter scale?
Weegy: he Richter scale, officially called the "Richter Magnitude Scale," is a numerical value used to measure the power of earthquakes. It is a logarithmic scale based on the amplitude of waves recorded by a seismograph. [ This means that each whole number increase on the scale corresponds to an absolute increase by a factor of ten. Earthquakes measured at less than about 2.0 on the Richter scale are not very serious, and can barely even be measured, much less felt. An earthquake is usually considered much more serious, and is felt by most people, once it hits about 5.0. ] User: 12. All the processes that form mountain ranges are known as (More)
