how is the focus of an earthquake related to the epicenter?
The earthquake focus is the point where rocks first rupture on a fault causing an earthquake. Directly above the focus on the Earth's surface is the earthquake epicenter. Earthquake waves start at he focus and travel outward in all directions. [ Earthquake waves do not originate at the epicenter.
