Place these cities on a "diagram" or, better, map, and be sure to put the cities at the correct relationship to one another using, as it says, the longitue and latitude of each. The draw a circle around each city using the distances found as the radii. Those three circles should all intersect at least close to a single point.It then gives a suggested method to be followed:
- Find distance from each 3 place to the epicente
- Build diagram that uses longitude and latitude as its co-ordinate system
The "latitude/longitude" of each city is used to put each city on your map. If you can identify a point where all three circles at least come close to intersecting, that will be the epicenter. The vectors will be from each city to the epicenter.- Define any further variables
- Develop vector relationships between each of the cities and the epicenter of the earthquake and use these to find the epicentre
- Generalise model for any 3 seismology centres and arrival times
OKAY so I'm kind of confused about how I'm supposed to find the epicentre and also how I am supposed to incorporate vectors and latitude/longitude into the solution
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
