it means you are trying to say that size depends on position. if upper the equator than its size is big and if around or below the equator than it's size smaller. but why it is so? still confused !
quake call as what?

  3. Earthquake Earthquake is a sudden shaking of the earth's surface. Focus is the location inside the earth where the earthquake originates. . Epicenter is the point on the earth's surface vertically above the focus of an earthquake. . Earthquake results from the sudden release of pressure which has slowly built up within the earth's crust

  4. . Energy is released in the form of shockwaves known as seismic waves. . The seismic waves can broadly be classified into two types namely Body waves and surface waves. . Body Waves are the waves that travel through the interior of the earth. They are further divided into P or Primary or Compressional waves and S or Secondary or Shear waves

  5. P or Primary or Compressional waves are the fastest seismic waves (6 km/ sec. in the upper crust) * They cause the matter to oscillate forward and backward, parallel to the motion of the seismic wave front. P waves push (compress) and pull (dilate) the rock that they pass through. They pass through all medium

  6. . S or Secondary or Shear waves are slower than the primary waves (3.5 km/sec. in the upper crust). perpendicular to the motion of the wave front. They pass through only solid medium. * They cause matter to oscillate side to side, S waves shear the rock that they pass through.

  8. . Surface Waves are the waves that travel along the earth's surface. They are slower than body waves. They cause damage during earthquakes. . Love waves shake the ground side to side like S wave Rayleigh waves displace the ground like rolling ocean waves. * The ground rolls forward and up and then down and backwards. This is similar to a p wave but with the extra up-down motion.
