Unformatted text preview: Solutions (HW #8) Prepared by Seong Chan Park I. 16.40 (a) f A = v- 15m / s v + 0m / s f A = 340- 15 340 392Hz = 375Hz (b) f B = v + 15m / s v- 35m / s f B = 340 + 15 340- 35 392Hz = 371Hz (c) f A- f B = 4Hz II. 16.69 (a)Let v insect be the speed of the insect and f insect the frequency with which the sound waves both strike and are reflected from the insect. The frequency of the wave strike the insect is given by: f insect = f bat v + v insect v- v bat . And the frequency at which the bat receives is shifted as: f refl = f insect v + v bat v- v insect . Combining these two relations, we could solve for v insect , v insect = v f relf ( v- v bat )- f bat ( v + v bat ) f relf ( v- v bat ) + f bat ( v + v bat ) . (1) (b) v insect = 340m / s 83 . 5(340- 3 . 9)- 80 . 7(340+3 . 9) 83 . 5(340- 3 . 9)+80 . 7(340+3 . 9) = 2 . 0m / s 1 III. 16.71 (a) f R = f S r c- v c + v = f S p 1- v/c p 1 + v/c = f S (1- v/c ) 1 / 2 (1 + v/c )- 1 / 2 (b) For v/c 1, (1 v/c ) 1 / 2 1- v/ 2 c ,so f L f S (1- v/ 2 c ) 2 f S (1- v/c ) (2) where we also used (1- x ) 2 1- 2 x for small x . (c) The speed of an ordinary airplane is much less than the speed of light and the ap- proximation v/c 1 is valid. f R = 243MHz + 46 . Hz (1 + v/c ) f S = (1 + v/c ) 243MHz . (3) So v/c = 1 . 89 10- 7 or v = 56 . 8m / s....
