The difference is that intensity is the extent of damage released by an earthquake and is measured differently at different places depending on its distance from the epicenter… while the magnitude is the amount of energy released by an earthquake and it has a fixed energy as it is released by an earthquake. .
It totally depends on what business you are running, such as a builder would want a labor intensive business, whilst a car maker would want a capital intensive business, disse…rent businesses need different things.

Sound intensity or acoustic intensity can be calculated from the objective measurement of the sound pressure. The loudness is a psycho-acoustic subjective feeling, which is …difficult to measure.
Magnitude is a measure of the energy released by the earthquake - it is an absolute value and does not vary with where it is measured. Intensity measures the strength of the s…haking at a particular location and will vary with distance, substrate conditions and other factors. It is a subjective measure which depends on observation, not measurement. The reference below sets it all out for you. Is also an answer but here's another answer: This is my answer:D(Magnitude / Intensity Comparison) (Magnitude and Intensity measure different characteristics of earthquakes. Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake. Magnitude is determined from measurements on seismographs while Intensity measures the strength of shaking produced by the earthquake at a certain location. Intensity is determined from effects on people, human structures, and the natural environment.)
Loudness is the quality of a sound that is the primarypsychological correlate of physical strength (amplitude). Loudnessis a subjective measure, which is often confused with o…bjectivemeasures of sound pressure as a sound field quantity. Thesound intensity or acoustic intensity as a sound energyquantity is defined as the sound power per unit area. The usualcontext is the noise measurement of sound intensity in the air at alistener's location. The ear responds to an enormous range of intensities. At 3000 Hz,the lowest intensity that the human ear can detect is about . Theloudest tolerable sound has an intensity of about . These twoextremes of the intensity range are called the threshold of hearing and the threshold of pain , respectively. Soundintensities above the threshold of pain may cause permanent damageto the eardrum and the ossicles. The ear does not respond linearlyto sound intensity; that is, a sound which is a million times morepowerful than another does not evoke a million times highersensation of loudness. The response of the ear to intensity iscloser to being logarithmic than linear. Because of the nonlinearresponse of the ear and the large range of intensities involved inthe process of hearing, it is convenient to express sound intensityon a logarithmic scale. On this scale, the sound intensity ismeasured relative to a reference level of (which is approximatelythe lowest audible sound intensity). The logarithmic intensity ismeasured in units of decibel (dB).
In thermodynamics, intensive quantities do not depend on the size of the system. For example temperature and density are size-independent, intensive quantities. Extensive … quantities, on the other hand, are proportional to the size of the system: volume is an obvious one, internal energy and entropy are others. A quick mental test is this: if I were to double the system's size by joining it to a duplicate of itself, would the relevant quantity remain the same or double? If it stays the same it is intensive, otherwise it is extensive.
It will depend on the types of organization, type of production,availability of resoures, how easily a factorcan be substituted,cost of production.
labour is hand made meaning without machines capital is with machines
Determine factors that will influence to choice between labor intensive and capital intensive technique?

Labor intensive agriculture means it primarily uses physical labor of humans. Machinery intensive agriculture means it primarily uses the power of machinery to do labor, inst…ead of or along with human beings doing the work.
A bank or investment company would be considered 'capital intensive' , a construction company or landscaping company would be considered 'labour intensive' because they employ… more people to try for the same gains.
pitch is the tone of the note/ssong. (high or low) intensity involves speed, loudness, business and strength in a piece
Loudness of sound: Loudness is that characteristic of sound by which we can distinguish between a loud and a faint sound.It depends upon amplitude, area of vibrating body, int…ensity and condition of ear. Intensity of sound: Sound energy flowing per second through a unit area held perpendicularly to the direction of sound waves is called the intensity of sound.Its unit is W/m2.
Capital intensity refers to the amount of work done to make a product. Labor is the work put into making the product. The ratio in proportion form is dividing the total compan…y assets by the amount of sales calculated.
By way of an example: Digging holes can be labor or capital intensive. You can use 1000 workers with cheap shovels (labor intensive) or 1 worker with an expensive "steam sh…ovel" (capital intensive). Some things cannot be done either way like picking strawberries (labor intensive) or manufacturing microcircuits (capital intensive).
