A mag lev train traveling at 180 m/s towards a rail way crossing sounds its horn with a wavelength of 0.20 m. What is the frequency of sound that people waiting at the rail way crossing hear?

  • physics -

    L = V/Fs.
    Fs = V/L = 343/0.2 = 1715 cy/s = 1715 Hz.= The frequency of the source.

    Fr = ((V+Vr)/(V-Vs))*Fs.
    Fr = ((343+0)/(343-180))*1715 = 3609 Hz.
    = Freq. received or heard by the people.
