1. Hello all, I'm revising a bit of Geography and in the revision book it says for the richter scale, " the magnitude increases 10 fold as you move up the scale because it is a logarithmic value"

What the hell does this even mean? Please make your explanation idiot proof.
2. for example a magnitude 1 would be 10 times greater than 0, 2.0 would be 10 times greater than 1.0 and 3.0 would be ten times greater than 2.

So it increase by x10 each level
