You hear a high pitch as he comes toward you, lower as he leaves So the actual frequency is lower than you hear. In fact you know it is between 195 and 147 Fl = [(v + vl)/(v+vs) ] Fs where Fl = frequency heard Fs = Frequency of source v = v sound vl = v listener vs = v source ...

do you mean n = c e^(at) ? I will assume that. when t = 0 , e^at = e^0 = 1 so c = 148 whet t = 2 333 = 148 e^(2a) 2.25 = e^(2a) so ln 2.25 = 2 a .8109 = 2 a a = .405 so n = 148 e^(.405 t)

well, first I factor it to see where zeros of the numerator and denominator are: (2x+3)(x-4) / [ (3x-1)(x-2) ] so you know the thing is going to be undefined at x = 1/3 and at x = 2 Now where are derivatives + , - and 0 ? If you use this you get a graph https://www.wolframalph...

I agree on all but #3. If by loop they mean antinode they occur 6 times including the ends. The distance from a node to an antinode is 1/4 lambda. I see ten quarter wavelengths in the 24 feet so 10( lambda/4) = 24 lambda = 2.4 *4 = 9.6 meters
