Intensity of earth quake is based on the observed effects of ground shaking on people,
buildings, and natural features. It varies from place to place within
the disturbed region depending on the location of the observer with
respect to the earthquake epicenter while magnitude is related to the
amount of seismic energy released at the hypocenter of the earthquake.
As the distance from the source increases the intensity decrases hence they are inversely porportional
intenstiy raito = 15/20=3/4=0.75
