Question

A car approaches you at a constant speed, sounding its horn, and you hear a frequency of 40 Hz. After the car goes by, you hear a frequency of 60 Hz. What is the frequency of the sound emitted by the horn? The speed of sound in the air is 343 ms-1.

Answer #1

As you are standing on
the pavement, a car approaches you at a speed of 98 km/h, sounding
its horn at a frequency of 9,213 Hz. Determine the frequency of the
sound that you hear in SI units (Hz)

A train approaches a crossing at a speed of 20.0 m/s, sounding
a horn with a frequency
of 1000 Hz. A driver stopped at the crossing blows his horn (f
= 800 Hz) in frustration.
(a) What frequency does the driver hear coming from the
approaching train horn?
(b) The driver continues blowing his horn after the train
passes. What frequency does the
train engineer hear coming from the car horn as the train
moves away from the crossing?

You are on a county road driving at a speed of 28 m/s when you
hear the siren of an oncoming fire engine. As the fire engine
approaches you, you hear the frequency of its siren as 2830 Hz, but
once it has passed you the frequency becomes 1860 Hz. What is the
speed of the fire engine? The speed of sound in air is 343 m/s.

From a vantage point very close to the track at a stock car
race, you hear the sound emitted by a moving car. You detect a
frequency that is 0.841 times smaller than that emitted by the car
when it is stationary. The speed of sound is 343 m/s. What is the
speed of the car?

A race car is traveling towards you and you hear a sound of
frequency 4072 Hz while the car is traveling towards you. Then the
car shoots by you and as the car is traveling away from you, you
hear a frequency of 2774 Hz. The car is moving at a constant speed
during the whole time you hear these two frequencies, what is the
speed (in m/s) of the car

A car horn produces a sound with a frequency of 408 Hz. The horn
is sounded while the car is moving down the street in the same
direction as a bicycle which is ahead of the car. The bicyclist is
moving down the street with 1/5.46 the speed of the car and hears a
frequency of 436 Hertz. Determine the speed of the car (in m/s).
The speed of the sound is 345 m/s.

A musician in a car travelling at a speed of 28.0 m/s plays a
horn (modeled as an open-closed tube 33.0 cm long). The note played
is at its fundamental frequency. What frequency does an observer
standing on the side of the road hear as the car approaches her?
Assume the speed of sound is 340 m/s.

an
abulance with its siren sounding is moving in a horizontal
direction at constant velocity. it has a 380Hz horn in it. use
343m/s for speed of sound for air if needed. (A) when the ambulance
is moving toward you, you meansure a frequency of 390Hz. determine
the speed if the ambulance givwn that you remain stationary. (B)
After the ambulance passes and starts moving away from you, you
start to move in yhe opposite direction of the ambulance. what...

A light-rail commuter train blows its 200 Hz horn as it
approaches a crossing. The speed of sound is 341 m/s.
(a) An observer waiting at the crossing receives a frequency of
213 Hz. What is the speed of the train? ____m/s
(b) What frequency does the observer receive as the train moves
away? ____Hz

A truck moving at 36 m/s passes a police car moving at 45 m/s in
the opposite direction. The frequency of the sound emitted by the
siren on the police car is 500 Hz and the speed of sound in air is
343 m/s.
(a) What is the frequency heard by an observer in the truck as
the police car approaches the truck?
(b) What is the frequency heard by an observer in the truck
after the police car passes...
