What is the Richter scale?

In 1935, American geologist Charles F. Richter invented an instrument that could measure the velocity of seismic waves rising on the Earth's surface. Seismic waves can be converted into data through this device. The Richter scale usually works according to the logarithm. According to this, a whole number is expressed 10 times its original meaning. 10 on the Richter scale represents the maximum velocity.


Why do earthquakes happen?

The earth is mainly made up of four layers, the inner core, outer core, mantle, and crust. The crust and the upper mantle are called the lithosphere. This 50-kilometer thick layer is divided into sections called tectonic plates. These tectonic plates keep on moving from their place, but when they move too much, an earthquake occurs. These plates can move both horizontally and vertically. After this, they find their place and in such a situation one plate comes under the other.
