Two cars moving in opposite directions approach each other with speed of 22 m/s and 16.5 m/s respectively. The driver of the first car blows a horn having a frequency 400 Hz. The frequency heard by the driver of the second car is [velocity of sound 340 m/s]:

  • Option 1)

    350 Hz

  • Option 2)

    361 Hz

  • Option 3)

    411 Hz

  • Option 4)

    448 Hz

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_{s}}
 

- wherein

C= Speed of sound

V_{0}= Speed of observer

V_{s}= speed of source

\nu _{0 }= Original frequency

\nu {}'= apparent frequency

 

 f_{app}=f_{o}\left[ \frac{v+v_{o}}{v-v_{s}} \right ]=400 \left[ \frac{340+16.5}{340-22} \right ]

\therefore f_{app}=448 Hz

350 Hz

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

361 Hz

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

411 Hz

This option is incorrect.

Option 4)
