Default Energy question



How much energy is released by an earthquake that measures 9 on the Richter
scale?

Also, how much energy is released by a 100 megaton atomic blast?

I don't have the numbers but the earthquake energy is larger by several
orders of magnitude.

Richter

About 10^18 Joules


100 megatons equals about 4.2x10^17 Joules
