Unformatted text preview: If the police car is moving, it is not clear what component of the radial motion is attributable to which car. Wave spectrum: On link about Doppler Effect: We can observe that since the source is stationary the emitting of the wavelengths are the same; however, once we make the source move, we can see that the pulses are centered only around the blue dot and the overall wave pattern is different from before. Doppler Formula: Δλ= λ obs- λ lab Δλ / λ = v radial /c Frequency and wavelength are inversely related. If wavelength increases than frequency has to decrease. Wavelength times frequency equal speed of light....
