## Doppler Effect

Summary

The content provides an in-depth exploration of the Doppler Effect, elucidating how motion affects the perceived frequency of sound through mathematical equations and practical examples.

- The Doppler Effect equation is introduced as f' = f * (v +/- vD)/(v -/+ vS), explaining the variables for emitted frequency, velocity of sound, and velocities of the source and detector.
- Practical scenarios illustrate how to apply the Doppler Effect equation, including a moving detector (person) and source (ambulance), and how these movements affect perceived sound frequency.
- A series of practice problems demonstrate the application of the Doppler Effect in real-world situations, such as an ambulance being followed by a lawyer, the ambulance stopping, and a police pursuit.
- The examples underscore the importance of selecting the correct operator (top or bottom) in the equation based on the direction of movement towards or away from the source or detector.
- The final outcome of each scenario reveals how the perceived frequency changes: it remains the same when speeds are matched, increases when moving towards a stationary source, and decreases when moving away from an approaching source.
