Do demo 3B40.10 - Doppler Effect - Buzzer and String Sound waves from a stationary source expand out equally in all directions. Doppler Effect If the source is moving, then the waves moving in the same direction get bunched together. Waves moving in the opposite direction get spread out. Observed frequency is where f = source frequency, v = speed of sound, v d = speed of detector, v s = speed of source To get the +/- signs right, remember that moving towards each other increases frequency.
Doppler Effect Detector is stationary. Waves with wavelength, λ, move past at speed, v . Number of waves in time, t , is . Frequency of waves passing detector Detector moves towards source with speed . Waves move past at relative speed . Number of waves in time, t , is . Frequency of waves passing detector

A child is swinging back and forth with a constant period and amplitude. Somewhere in front of the child, a stationary horn is emitting a constant tone of frequency f S . Five points are labeled in the drawing to indicate positions along the arc as the child swings.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
