1. A train whistle has a frequency of 1000 Hz. If the train is speeding
at a velocity of 60 km/h past a stationary railroad crossing
attendant, what is the apparent frequency a) as the train approaches him, b) as it moves away from him?
Assume speed of sound to be 350 m/s.

2. A second train is approaching the first train (above) with a speed of
60 km/h. Obtain the frequency of the whistle of the first as heard by
the engineer of the second train.

3. Sound is reflected by a screen moving with a speed 20 km/h toward
the source and observer. If the frequency of the source is 450 khz,
what is the apparent frequency of the reflected sound?
