please help? medals rewarded!!! A scientist goes to a site that has been devastated by an earthquake. By observing around the epicenter of the quake, the scientist finds that very severe movement of the earth occurred. An earthquake like this one had not hit the area in approximately 300 years. Using the details described above, what was the likely magnitude of this earthquake on the Richter Scale? A. 1-2 B. 3-4 C. 5-6 D. 7-8

    "If the earthquake devastated the area and one like it hadn't occurred in over 300 years - what is your best guess? The Richter Scale is based on what is most likely to occur with each seismic rating. Look for the Richter Scale either online or in your book. :)" Just reposting my answer for you. Working on my homework and didn't see that you tagged me in the other one til a few moments ago.

    7-8 in the Ritcher scale, or even more. You can see it in the history of Japan, they have a lot of earthquakes because of the geologic activity of the area, but worse ones happen like once in a century and they have a magnitude of 8 or even 9 sometimes.
