to an observer the pitch of the stationary source of the sound appears to be reduced by 20% if speed of sound is 340m/s then sped and direction of 5he observer is
options
1.68 m/s away from the observer
2.96 m/s away from the observer

• physics -

{f(observed) - f(source)}/f(observed) = 20/100, u = 340 m/s
At source approaching
f(observed) = [v/(v-u)] •f(source),
v =[f(obs)-f(sour)] •u/ f(obs) = 20% •340/100%= 68 m/s.
