To test it, you ask a friend to blow the whistle and hop on his moped. In which direction should he ride (toward or away from you) to know if the whistle is working? Explain in words or with a diagram. The friend should ride away from me so the wavelength increases. The frequency then decreases so that i am able to hear the sound coming from the whistle. 2. While standing near a bus stop, a student hears a distant horn beeping. The frequency emitted by the horn is 440 Hz. The bus is traveling at 20.0 m/s, and the speed of sound is 330 m/s.

    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.
