Learning Task 3: Study the picture. follow the procedures indicated in the activity before answering the questions.

Draw the location of the epicenter of an earthquake in Carmona, Silang,

GMA Cavite if the hypothetical distance of epicenter in Carmona is 300 Km,

Silang is 200km, and GMA is 200km. Draw this in your notebook

Scale 1cm=100Km

The hypothetical distance of the epicenter is 300 km, Silang is **200 km**

GMA is **200 km.**

So, as a result, we just add both of them.

= 300 km + 200 km

= **500 km.**

Epicenter of an earthquake in Carmona is **500 km.**

Scientists use triangulation to define the epicenter of an earthquake. When seismic data is compiled from at least three different locations, it can be used to determine the epicenter by where it intersects. Every earthquake is recorded on numerous seismographs placed in different directions.

Each seismograph records the times when the first (P waves) and second (S waves) seismic waves start.

From that information, scientists can define how fast the waves are traveling. Knowing this assists them to calculate the distance from the epicenter to each seismograph.

To describe the direction each wave traveled, scientists draw circles around the seismograph locations. The radius of each circle is equivalent to the known distance to the epicenter. Where these three spheres intersect is the epicenter.
