This brief solution determines the frequency the observer hears using equations for the Doppler Effect.
What is the Doppler effect? Frequency of the sound shift.
What is the Doppler effect? Assume that a sound source is moving toward a sound detector at a speed of 60 m/s. According to the stationary detector, by what fraction does the frequency of the sound shift? Assume the speed of sound to be 330 m/s. Will the frequency appear to be higher or lower? Assume now police operated microwave radar. How fast would a car need to be moving in order to achieve the same frequency shift fraction? Assume the speed of light to be 3 X 10 to 8th m/s.View Full Posting Details
