Confused! kindly explain, - Oscillations and Waves - JEE Main

A bat moving at 10 ms -1 towards a wall sends a sound signal of 8000 Hz towards it. On reflection it hears a sound of frequency f. The value of f in Hz is close to

(speed of sound=320 ms-1)

As we learnt in

Frequency of sound when source and observer are moving towards each other -

\nu {}'= \nu _{0}.\frac{C+V_{0}}{C-V_{\Delta }}
 

- wherein

C= Speed of sound

V_{0}= Speed of observer

V_{\Delta }= speed of source

\nu _{0 }= Original frequency

\nu {}'= apparent frequency

 

 Reflected frequency of sound reaching bat.

\upsilon'=\left[\frac{v-(-v_{0})}{v-v_{s}} \right ]\upsilon=\left[\frac{v+v_{0}}{v-v_{s}} \right ]\upsilon=\frac{v+10}{v-10}\upsilon

=\left(\frac{320+10}{320-10} \right )\times=8516\ Hz

Correct option is 2.
