Planet earth lab 3

Introduction: Earthquakes occur when there is movement along a fault.  The friction between rock masses rubbing against one another generates shock waves which travel through Earth.  These shock waves (seismic waves) created by the earthquake are radiated in every direction from the focus, the point in the Earth where the actual movement takes place.  An earthquake occurs every 30 seconds, day after day.  Most of these are so weak they would go unnoticed without the use of sensitive modern instruments called seismographs.
