To locate the epicenter of an earthquake a seismologists must determine all of the following except ?

a) the difference between arrival time of P and S waves

b) seismographic locations data from the seismograph locations

c) the distance from the epicenter to at least three different seismograph locations

d) the intensity of the earthquake

B ??

I know nothing about this science but do not understand why intensity would impact my triangulation to find the location.

• science -

You are right it is B.

Don't listen to Dave. Damon was right, the answer is D. I just took the test. I got this answer wrong thanks to Dave, but Damon is right. The answer is D, the intensity of the earthquake.

A

P.S. I got the question right.
