Best Answer

The Richter magnitude scale (often shortened to

Richter scale) was developed to assign a single number to

quantify the energy that is released during an earthquake. An

earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the

result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth’s crust that

creates seismic waves
