    What Percentage Of Tundra Is Covered In Grass? On a theoretical volcanic tundra island what percentage of the land would be grass covered?
    i know that it is mostly frozen soil but all my resources say there are grasses but dont specify how much,
    needed to create a disturbance graph showing the effect of earthquake on grass populations but i need a starting point

    HW HELP!!! What Would Be Energy Released In Joules Of An Earthquake Of Magnitude 9.2? My teacher told us this information… The Richter scale is a common logarithmic function (base 10) based on a standard energy release
    of Eo = 10^4.8 joules. The energy released by an earthquake, E in joules, is then measured against
    the standard by the formula, M ≅ 0.6667log(x) and x=E/Eo, to get the Richter scale magnitude of the
    earthquake, M. (Hint: log(a × 10^b) = log(a) +b; example log(5.0 × 10^5.2) = log(5)+5.2 ≅ 0.69897 +
    5.2 ≅ 5.89897 ≅ 5.9 rounded to one decimal place.)

    The problem is… What would be energy released in joules of an
    earthquake of magnitude 9.2? Correctly round your answer to one decimal place, and
    show work. (Hint: Replace M(x) by 9.2, and solve the logarithmic equation for x; then multiply x by 10^4.4 to get the value of E for this magnitude.)

    Science Help? I have a question in a homework packet and I have no idea what the answer is..

    What causes earthquakes? Provide an example using your knowledge of plate boundaries.

    Should Muslims Make Fun Of Other Religions? I have submitted questions here to learn about Muslims. I am always polite.

    Then a Muslim asked a question about my religion and made fun of us and Muslims came to the question and made fun as well.

    Is that respect?

    • Curator says:

      I’m Muslim and I respect members of other faiths. It’s sad, because in this section, not only do Muslims mock other people’s beliefs. they fight among themselves (Shia vs Sunni). It’s not only Muslims though, Christians and members of other faiths mock others as well . Pat Robertson, a Christian priest, said that Haitians deserved to have that earthquake in 2010 because they signed a pact with the devil. That’s a dumb thing to say and it’s disrespectful.

    I Had An Earthquake Dream! Help.? So this morning I woke up. I live in Ca so earthquakes r normal but still scary. So in the dream, i was in the office room of my house, or i was sleeping in my bed. I cant remember. So then the earthquake alarm rang. The alarm rings for quakes 3. And higher. It rings 15 seconds before. So it rang, then i yelled to everyone, ” DOWNSTAIRS!! EARTH QUAKE! Get outside” so i ran down stair before the quake started. Then it started. It was big. As i held the knob of the front door, it shocked me. But i still went outside. I was the onlyone. I felt sad and deppresed. I was just standing there. Im pretty sure noone got injured. I think everyone made safety. But idk cuz towards the end i was the only one.
    What does this mean. Please help.
    Sorry for bad grammer.

    O and this also happened. I was imagining that my bff would txt me like. At the time and ten secs later she did. Lol. So ya im a girl too
