A yellow submarine traveling horizontally at 11.0 m/s uses sonar with a frequency of 5.27 x 103 Hz. A red submarine is in front of the yellow submarine and moving 3.00 m/s relative to the water in the same direction. A crewman in the red submarine observes sound waves (“pings”) from the yellow submarine. Take the speed of sound in seawater as 1533 m/s. (a) Write Equation 14.12. (b) Which submarine is the source of the sound? (c) Which submarine carries the observer? (d) Does the motion of the observer’s submarine increase or decrease the time between the pressure maxima of the incoming sound waves? How does that affect the observed period? The observed frequency? (e) Should the sign of v0 be positive or negative? (f) Does the motion of the source submarine increase or decrease the time observed between the pressure maxima? How does this motion affect the observed period? The observed frequency? (g) What sign should be chosen for vs? (h) Substitute the appropriate numbers and obtain the frequency observed by the crewman on the red submarine.
