Unformatted text preview: individual length will depend on which fault line segment they are located. Assuming that earthquakes are equally likely to occur at any point on the fault, plot the cumulative distribution (12 points) for the expected epicentral distance. b) Compute the probablility density function for this fault, using Eq. 4.4 and assuming that the fault is linear from one end to the other. Using a spreadsheet, numerically integrate this equation to compute the cumulative distribution function (CDF). Compare a plot of this CDF with that obtainied in part a. Problem 4. Solve textbook Problem 4.4 (a) and (b). (You are welcome to work in groups of two on this assignment. Turn in a single assignment with both of your names.)...
