Textbook Problem

A space probe speeding towards the nearest star moves at 0.250c and sends radio information at a broadcast frequency of 1.00 GHz. What frequency is received on the Earth?

To determine

The frequency of the radio wave received on the Earth.

Explanation

Given info:

  • The space probe is moving toward nearest star with speed 0.250c .
  • The broadcast frequency of the radio wave is 1GHz .

Formula used:

Formula to find the frequency of the radio wave the observer on Earth is,

  f0=fs1uc1+uc

Here, f0 is the frequency of the radio wave observed on Earth, fs frequency of the broadcasted radio signal, u is the velocity of the space probe and c is the speed of light
