F : 1C _ ‘f v...“ V“ _ G l j: \‘fgouvﬂl _ vat Two ducks, conveniently named A and B, are floating on the surface of the pond. Duck A begins kicking his feet three times per second, producing a series of
rippleswith wavelength A: 2 meters which travel across the pond toward duck B. Neither duck is moving at the moment.

his feet at the same frequency f = 2 times per second, and is still generating a
wavefront with. each kick. Duck B remains stationary as she observes the ripples passing by her location. & _

Wv-o b) As measured by duck B, what is now the speed of the waves? c) As measured by duck B, what is the frequency of the waves? Duck A continues to move at constant speed. Now duck B also begins
swimming. Once more she measures the frequency of the waves produced by , duck A, gaging an answer of six cycles per second. 5? 7 \fwove:7 ' i d) Is duck gmoving to the left or to the right? Briefly say ho% youknow. - e)- Calculate her speed W» Va . ' ...
