A) 375 Hz B) 400 Hz C) 425 Hz D) 450 Hz 6) A car approaches you at a constant speed, sounding its horn, and you hear a frequency of 76 Hz. After the car goes by, you hear a frequency of 65 Hz. What is the frequency of the sound emitted by the horn? The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s. A) 68 Hz B) 69 Hz C) 70 Hz D) 71 Hz 7) Two in-phase loudspeakers are 3.00 m apart. They emit sound with a frequency of 490 Hz. A microphone is placed half-way between the speakers and then moved along the line joining the two speakers until the first point of constructive interference is found. At what distance from that midpoint is that first point? The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s.
