Seismograph circuit diagram

In Mexico there are always earthquakes in September?. This is a myth, in reality in Mexico as in other places with tectonic faults earthquakes occur almost daily.

The Servicio Sismol├│gico Nacional (National Earthquake System) mentions that to date there is no technology to predict earthquakes.

On their website they can see the latest earthquakes detected by their systems:

There are several earthquakes a day, the magnitude of some is so small that we do not feel them.

But we can detect a small earthquake with the following homemade seismograph. Once built and fine-tuned, it is capable of detecting earthquakes that occur several hundred kilometers away.

In my case I have come to detect earthquakes whose epicenter was 700 km away.

Materials:

  1. Transparent disposable cup
  2. Aluminum foil
  3. Clips
  4. Two screws (#6-32, 2 inch)
  5. Two nuts for the screws
  6. A 9 volt battery
  7. Alligator connectors (3)
  8. Electronic buzzer
