what is the relationship between a one-point increase in magnitude and the amount of energy released by an earthquake?

• science -

10 times.
An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.0 is 10 times weaker than one with a magnitude of 6.0 and 100 times weaker than one with a magnitude of 7.0.

thank you =)
