## When did Charles Francis Richter invent the Richter scale?

## What is the Richter scale and who invented it?

The Richter magnitude scale was developed in 1935 by **Charles F.****Richter of the California Institute of Technology as a mathematical device to compare the size of earthquakes. The magnitude of an earthquake is determined from the logarithm of the amplitude of waves recorded by seismographs.**

## What is Richter scale?

earthquake magnitude

## What is a Richter scale Class 8?

The Richter Scale is a **series of numbers from 1 to 12 used to express the magnitude (or size) of an earthquake. An earthquake of magnitude 2 is ten times as strong as an earthquake of magnitude 1. An earthquake of magnitude 3 on Richter Scale is 100 times as strong as an earthquake of magnitude 1 on the same scale.**

## What is Richter scale in earthquake?

The Richter scale **measures the largest wiggle (amplitude) on the recording, but other magnitude scales measure different parts of the earthquake. Intensity is a measure of the shaking and damage caused by the earthquake; this value changes from location to location.**
