A sound source with a frequency of 1700 Hz moves at 50 m / s towards a wall reflector that moves away from the source at 55 m / s. If the speed of sound is 343 m / s determine the frequency that detects the source of the reflected wave.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The refracting wall is moving away from the sound source and the source is moving toward the refracting wall.

Thus, from doppler effect,
