Use the following scenario to set up lab 15.3 on p.12-13 of your workbook.
Mr. Juarez watched a science show that stated earthquakes are caused by rocks moving and breaking, which release Seismic waves. He already knew that earthquakes are not all the same strength. He wondered if the rocks at plate boundaries/faults have something to do with this occurrence. He decided to use different amounts of Velcro (0, 1, 2, 3 strips), representing frictional resistance, to see how it changed the amount of force (N) needed to rupture/break a fault.
- 1-spring scale
- 1-plastic box with holes
- 1-fault block set with Velcro
- 1-bolt with wing nut

2. Using the drop down menu for “Month,” select the month you are collecting data for. For example, March (3/21). Click “show.”
3. Collect data for sunrise, sunset, and solar noon times, as well as length of day and angle of separation (altitude).
4. Using the drop down menu for “Columns,” select “rise,set time, azimuth” and click “Show.”
5. Hold cursor over the arrows next to “Sunrise” and “Sunset” azimuth to collect data for compass direction.
6. Graph the angle of separation for sunrise, solar noon, and sunset. Each city should have it’s own graph. Each month is represented with a separate colored line (hint: make a key).
