A state trooper chases a speeder along a straight road; both vehicles move at 160 km/h. The siren on the trooper's vehicle produces sound at frequency of 500 Hz. What is the Doppler shift in the frequency heard by the speeder?

    doppler shift depends on the relative difference between the source and the receiver, in this case, no relative motion, so no doppler shift.
