Student Handout_IS5T1A: Explore 2- Earthquakes-Modeling Seismic waves Name ___________________________________________________ Date ___________________ Period __ Explore 2: EarthQuakes-Modeling Seismic waves Guiding questions: 1. How does the ground move during an earthquake? It shakes side to side and up and down 2. What happens to rocks before, during, and after an earthquake? The rocks are still before, moving during, and still afterwards Directions: 1. You will use a model to explain the different ways that earthquakes transmit energy through the rocks of the Earth’s interior and surface. To begin, place a coiled spring on the floor. This coil represents the solid rocks of Earth’s crust and interior. Have one person in your group hold one end of the coiled spring and a second person hold the other end. Back away from each other so that the coiled spring stretches out about 5 meters long ( about 15 feet). 2. Have one person quickly push the end of the coiled spring a short distance toward the other person. Observe the motion of the coiled spring. Repeat the pulse until each member of your group can describe the resulting motion of the coiled spring.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
