Problem 19DQ

Can you think of circumstances in which a Doppler effect would be observed for surface waves in water? For elastic waves propagating in a body of water deep below the surface? If so, describe the circumstances and explain your reasoning. If not, explain why not.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 2

Solution 19DQ STEP 1: In water, the water waves have a speed of propagation. As an observer is moving away from the source or moving towards the source, the frequency and wavelength would change accordingly to keep the speed of the waves constant. The same is true for sound and light waves. The wavelength and frequency changes to maintain the speed of the wave constant. So, doppler effect is true for any kind of waves, whether it is sound or electromagnetic.
