Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi Everyone:

I'm writing a general paper on an event that happened near Aplao,Peru on Feb 2nd,2004.

Here's the link:http://geocities.com/astroycpa/meteoritoaqp2feb2004.html

It's in Spanish and can be translated using Babelfish or Google text translations.


I have no knowledge of astrophysics whatsoever and would like to ask a few questions. I know there's going to be a lot of variables but I was just hoping some some general responses.

Assuming a density of 3.3 grams per cubic centimeter, how large would the mass have been to create an explosion that produced a 3.8 reading on the Richter scale?

I have other questions but I'll just start with this one first.


Thanks

Steve
