Solving for seismic moment

#### Inputs:

 rock rigidity pascal atmosphere bar dyne/centimeter^2 foot of water inch of mercury inch of water kilonewton/meter^2 millibar millimeter of mercury newton/meter^2 pound/foot^2 pound/inch^2 torr fault area meter^2 acre international acre US survey are barn centimeter^2 foot^2 hectare inch^2 kilometer^2 mile^2 mile^2 nautical ping township yard^2 slip distance or length meter attometer centimeter chain dekameter decimeter exameter femtometer foot gigameter hectometer inch kilometer light year link megameter micrometer micron mile millimeter nanometer petameter picometer rod terameter yard

#### Conversions:

 rock rigidity = 0 = 0 dyne/centimeter^2 fault area = 0 = 0 centimeter^2 slip distance or length = 0 = 0 centimeter

#### Solution:
