Unformatted text preview: = -25cos(10x-5t = v max = abs(f(x)) = 25m/s II. Doppler Effect 1. received frequency 1. received ~ source +/- Δ(f) 2. approx: Δ(f)/source frequency ~ u/v 1. u: relative velocity of source/receiver 2. v: propagation speed of the wave 3. Δ(f) is positive if waves are approaching Δ(f) is negative if the waves are receding 4. if approaching: source + your velocity(source)/c 5. concept test 1. detected frequency = f you + speed of the car/c(f you) detected frequency = f you + speed of the car/c(f you) + speed of the car/c(f you) detected frequency = f you + 2*speed of the car/c(f you) 2. FM Waves 1. harmonic FM waves 1. E(x,t) = E m sin(kx +ω (t)) B(x,t) = B m sin(kx +ω (t)) 2. E = Bc E m = B m c 3. right hand rule E x B: fingers to E rotate to B y(x,t) = Asin(kx +/- omega(t)) A = Amplitude k = 2π/λ= wave number ω= 2 π f = 2π/T = angular frequency f = 1/T V prop = λ (f) = ω/k Doppler Shift: f R = f S +/- Δ(f)ω Δ(f)/ f S ~ u/v if u<<v...
