Homework Help: Earth Science(Please help)

Posted by Janet on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at 3:17pm.

How much more energy is released in a 5.0 magnitude earthquake than a 4.0 magnitude earthquake?

I know that a tenfold increase in wave amplitude equals an increase of 1 on the scale so 1 to 2 = 10times

so does that mean that 2 to 3 would be 10 more times?
