Lesson: Seismic Waves Physics
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the similarities and differences between infrasonic S-waves and P-waves and how they travel through the Earth’s interior.
Which of the following statements about S-Waves is not correct?
Which of the following statements about P-waves is not correct?
The position of an earthquake’s epicenter is shown in the diagram. P-waves and S-waves are emitted from the epicenter. Three seismic sensor stations A, B, and C are shown.
Which station will detect only S-waves?
Which station will detect only P-waves?
Which station will detect S-waves and P-waves?
Which station will detect neither P-waves nor S-waves?
