Chapter 3   Earthquakes

Typical Student Misconceptions

(from serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/intro/misconception_list.htm)

1. Earthquakes are rare events
2. The ground cracks open during an earthquake to swallow people and buildings
4. Seismic waves involve long distance net motion of particles
5. Seismic waves go from crust to core, but not core to crust
6. S-waves do not reach other side of Earth from where earthquake originated because they cannot pass through oceans (or cannot reach islands)
7. Wind blowing through subterranean passages causes earthquakes
8. Earthquakes occur from collapse of subterranean hollow spaces
9. The biggest earthquake is a magnitude 10

1) Which of the following statements is false about the magnitude of earthquakes?

A) Magnitudes of earthquakes are based on powers of ten.

B) An earthquake of magnitude 3 on the scale is only slightly bigger than a 2.

C) Great earthquakes can have a magnitude of 8 or higher.

D) Over a million earthquakes of magnitude 2-2.9 is felt per year.

E) The Richter Scale and Moment Magnitude scales are used to describe the magnitude of an earthquake.

3) What is the difference between earthquake Intensity and Magnitude?

A) Only strong earthquakes have intensity

B) Intensity refers to the effects that earthquakes have, Magnitude refers to energy released
