A speeder tries to explain to the police that the yellow warning lights she was approaching on the side of the road looked green to her because of the Doppler shift. How fast would she have been traveling if yellow light of wavelength 580 nm had been shifted to green with a wavelength of 560 nm? Assume c=3x108 m/s and that light was moving not the car. Write your answer in percents of c rounded to a two decimals for example 1.25
