(a) What is the ratio of the intensity of an earthquake wave as it passes a point 20 km from the source to the intensity as it passes a point 15 km from the source?

 
(b) What is the ratio of the amplitude of an earthquake wave as it passes a point 20 km from the source to the amplitude as it passes a point 15 km from the source?

20m/15m= 1.33

1.33^2= 1.77

Ratio of intensity = 1/1.77

Ratio of amplitude = square root(1.77)= 1.33
