How would I go about converting intensity to magnitude? (earthquakes)
Richter of 6.1 = 1,258,925.412
But, I am unable to do the opposite! >.<
If you'd use one for an example, that would be greatly appreciated.
The formula is
where is the intensity of a zero-level earthquake. Looking at this:
I'm assuming that you're assuming that the intensity of a zero-level earthquake is 1.Richter of 6.1 = 1,258,925.412
So, for an intensity of 39,877,000,
You can do the other two.
