The 17500 Hz whine of the turbines in the jet engines of an aircraft moving with speed 280 m/s is heard at what frequency by the pilot of a second craft trying to overtake the first at a speed of 380 m/s?
F = ((V+Vr)/(V+Vs))*Fs,
V = 343 m/s = Speed of sound in air.
Vr = 380 m/s = Speed of receiver.
Vs = 280 m/s = Speed of source.
Fs = 17,500 Hz. = Frequency of source.
F = 20,309 Hz.
Plug-in the given values to verify results.
