Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 5 Doppler Shift The Big Idea As source approaches: Wavelength decreases Frequency Increases Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 6 Doppler Shift for em Waves
What's Different from Sound or Water Waves ?
Sound /Water Waves : You can calculate (no relativity needed) BUT Result is somewhat complicated: is source or observer moving wrt medium? Electromagnetic Waves : You need relativity (time dilation) to calculate BUT Result is simple: only depends on relative motion of source & observer 1+ f= f 1 1 2 = v/c > 0 if source & observer are approaching < 0 if source & observer are separating
Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 7 Doppler Shift for em Waves f' f
Source approaching observer v
or f f' Observer approaching source v The Doppler Shift is the SAME for both cases ! f'/f ONLY DEPENDS ON THE RELATIVE VELOCITY 1+ f= f 1 1 2 Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 8 Red Shift Wavelengths shifted higher wavelength Frequencies shifted lower Star separating from us (Expanding Universe) Our Sun Star in a distant galaxy Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 9 Example Police radars get twice the effect since the EM waves make a round trip: f f ( 1 + 2 )
If f = 24,000,000,000 Hz (kband radar gun) c = 300,000,000 m/s v 30 m/s (67 mph) 31 m/s (69 mph) 1.000 x 107 1.033 x 107 f' 24,000,004,800 24,000,004,959 f'f 4800 Hz 4959 Hz

A Note on Approximations

Remember > 0 for approach < 0 for separation around = 0 WHY ?? Taylor Series: Expand

Intensity = Average energy delivered per unit time, per unit area 1 dU I A dt Length = c dt Area = A dU = u volume = u Acdt I =c u
Sunlight on Earth: I ~ 1000J/s/m2 ~ 1 kW/m2

Just another way to keep track of all this Its magnitude is equal to I Its direction is the direction of propagation of the wave Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 16 Light has Momentum!
Momentum of light is E/c light can exert pressure!!
Analogy from mechanics: p2 E= 2m d E 2 p dp mv dp = = dt 2m dt m dt = vF For EM waves: dE dU = IA dt dt vc
IA = cF

Which of the following actions will increase the energy carried by an electromagnetic wave? A. Increase E keeping constant C. Both of the above will increase the energy B. Increase keeping E constant D. Neither of the above will increase the energy Is that all there is to it? WHAT ABOUT PHOTONS? Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 18 PHOTONS
We believe the energy in an em wave is carried by photons Question: What are Photons? Answer: Photons are the "quanta" of the electromagnetic field. Photons possess both wave and particle properties Particle: Energy and Momentum localized Wave: They have definite frequency & wavelength (f = c) Connections seen in equations: E = hf p = h/ Planck's constant h = 6.63e34 Js Question: How can something be both a particle and a wave? Answer: It can't (when we observe it) What we see depends on how we choose to measure it ! The mystery of quantum mechanics: More on this in PHYS 214

Physics 212 Lecture 23, Slide 22 +z points out of screen z points into screen a t t = /2 : E B points in negative zdirection A certain unnamed physics professor was arrested for running a stoplight. He said the light was green. A pedestian said it was red. The professor then said: "We are both being truthful; you just need to account for the Doppler effect !" Calculation Is it possible that the professor's argument is correct? ( green = 500 nm, red = 600 nm) (A) Y ES (B) NO As professor approaches stoplight, the frequency of its emitted light will be shifted UP The speed of light does not change Therefore, the wavelength (c/f) would be shifted DOWN If he goes fast enough, he could observe a green light !
