Consider the following statements
1.The point where an earthquake originates is called epicenter.
2.The shadow zone of an earthquake can be located with the help of epicenter.
3.The shadow zone of s wave is larger than that of p wave
How many of the statements given above are correct?
"The point where an earthquake originates is called the epicenter." - This statement is incorrect. The point where an earthquake originates is called the focus, not the epicenter. The epicenter is the point on the Earth's surface directly above the focus.
"The shadow zone of an earthquake can be located with the help of the epicenter." - This statement is correct. The shadow zone is an area on the Earth's surface where no direct seismic waves from a particular earthquake can be detected. By studying the locations where seismic waves were not recorded, scientists can determine the shadow zone and infer information about the Earth's interior.
"The shadow zone of S-wave is larger than that of P-wave." - This statement is correct. The shadow zone of S-waves is actually larger than that of P-waves. P-waves can travel through the Earth's outer core, while S-waves cannot, leading to a larger shadow zone for S-waves.
