PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A distance/time graph of P and S waves is an important tool in the study of earthquakes. This resources provides the data table and custom graph paper for students to create this graph. From plotting the data, students see how P and S waves travel at different speeds and how the time between their arrivals can be used to measure the distance from the epicenter. Two versions of custom graph paper are included; with and without axis labeled which allows you to differentiate the activity.

For students that finish early, this resource also includes a worksheet with questions where students must use the time/distance graph to answer. Answer key provided.
