Abstract

The Earthquake results by the movement of tectonic plates. There might be various causes of motion of these plates. Based on type of motion and speed of collision, the nature and strength of earthquake varies. It is difficult to present an unique model of physics to explain the earthquake since the nature and strength significantly varies with time and place.
