Apparently a magnitude estimate is just a estimate just closer to the actual answer.
OOM (Order of magnitude) estimate
10000 or 104 97 x 192 is 18624 the order of magnitude for this number is the nearest power of 10 which is 104 or 10000. Russell Steel Scotland

To estimate the magnitude or amount of damage it could cause to infrastructure and environment.
900 is an estimate. But why would you want to estimate such a simple calculation?
It is a bit confusing. An order of magnitude is a factor of 10, but an order of magnitude estimate is more like a factor of 3, or the square root of 10. In some cases it is simply a "ball park" estimate. For example if a company give an order of magnitude estimate for a major construction project of 10,000,000 dollars, it could be anywhere from 3 million to 30 million, but usually it means roughly 10,000,000, give or take a few million.
magnitude is determined by the estimate of the total amount of energy released during fault ruptures
The moment magnitude scale measures the energy released by the earthquake.
I don't have an answer yet!
It is a million.
Ignore the remainder: after all, it is only meant to be an estimate - not an exact answer!
It is tens of thousands.
Tens of thousands.
The moment magnitude scale is used to measure the magnitude of large earthquakes. The Richter scale is still used to make an initial estimate of the magnitude of larger earthquakes and to measure small and moderate ones (those with a magnitude below 7).
