Unformatted text preview: for K , we obtain I = 1 . 5 W/m 2 . (c) The surface area of a cylinder of height d is 2 rd , so the intensity of the surface wave is I = P A cylinder = (0 . 20) K/ t (2 rd ) = 25 10 3 W / m 2 using d = 5 . 0 m, r = 200 10 3 m and the smaller value for K from part (a). Using instead the larger estimate for K , we obtain I = 58 kW/m 2 . (d) Although several factors are involved in determining which seismic waves are most likely to be detected, we observe that on the basis of the above Fndings we should expect the more intense waves (the surface waves) to be more readily detected....
