Every increase of 1 on the Richter scale corresponds to a 10-fold increase in ground motion. Therefore, an increase on the Richter scale from A to B means that ground motion increases by a factor of 10BϪA (for B Ͼ A). Find the increase in ground motion between the following earthquakes: a. 3. ) (continues) highest waterfall in the United States, Ribbon Falls in Yosemite, California (1650 feet high). 91– 92.
