Physics

WavesAccording to the Doppler effect what happens to the frequency of a wave if the source is moving toward the receiver a It decreases b It behaves unpredictably c It stays the same d It increases

Physics

WavesA couple students are sending waves down a length of string The students want to change the speed of the wave so they change the frequency of the waves but they notice the wave speed remains constant regardless of the frequency Which answer best describes why the students are not getting different speeds a They are not creating waves with large enough amplitude so the waves speed remains constant b The rope has a defect and they must obtain a new rope to get better data Oc As they increase the frequency the wavelength increases too in order to keep the wave speed constant d The speed of the wave only depends on the medium in which it travels so changing frequency has no effect
