16.73: a) The frequency is greater than 2800 MHz; the thunderclouds, moving toward the installation, encounter more wavefronts per time than would a stationary cloud, and so an observer in the frame of the storm would detect a higher frequency. Using the result of Problem 16.71, with h, Km 0 . 42 - = v Hz. 109 s) m 10 00 . 3 ( s) m h/1 km (3.6 h) km (42.0 Hz) 10 2800 ( 8 6 S S R = × × = - = - c v f f f b) The waves are being sent at a higher frequency than 2800 MHz from an approaching source, and so are received at a higher frequency. Repeating the above calculation gives

Unformatted text preview: the result that the waves are detected at the installation with a frequency 109 Hz greater than the frequency with which the cloud received the waves, or 218 Hz higher than the frequency at which the waves were originally transmitted at the receiver. Note that in doing the second calculation, Hz 109 MHz 2800 S + = f is the same as MHz 2800 to three figures....

    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.
