The wavelength is 600 cm when the source is stationary. If the source is moving with relative velocity of 60 m/sec towards the observer, then the wavelength of the sound wave reaching to the observer will be (velocity of sound = 330 m/s)

  • Option 1)

    98 cm

  • Option 2)

    60 cm

  • Option 3)

    49 cm

  • Option 4)

    120 cm

As we learnt in 

Frequency of sound when observer is stationary and source is moving towards observer -

\nu {}'= \nu _{0}.\frac{C}{C-V_{s}}
 

- wherein

C= speed of sound

V_{s}= speed of source

\nu _{0}= original frequency

\nu {}'= apparent frequency

 

 \nu=\nu_{o}\:.\:(\frac{C}{C-V_{s}})\:\:\:\therefore\frac{\nu}{\nu_{o}}=\frac{C}{C-V_{s}}

\lambda\:\propto \frac{1}{\nu}\:\:\:=>\frac{\lambda_{2}}{\lambda_{1}}=\frac{C-V_{s}}{C}=\frac{330-60}{330}=\frac{270}{330}

\lambda_{2}=\frac{9}{11}\times 60.0\:cm\:=\:49\:cm
