Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, April 25, 2013 at 10:35am.

Suppose that a police car on the highway is moving to the right at 27 m/s, while a speeder is coming up from almost directly behind at a speed of 35 m/s, both speeds being with respect to the ground. The police officer aims a radar gun at the speeder. Assume that the electromagnetic wave emitted by the radar gun has a frequency of 7.00 109 Hz. Find the the difference between the frequency of the wave that returns to the police car after reflecting from the speeder's car, and the original frequency emitted by the police car.
1 Hz
The wave that returns to the police car has the greater frequency.
The emitted wave has the greater frequency.
