Problem 75P

The sound source of a ship’s sonar system operates at a frequency of 18.0 kHz. The speed of sound in water (assumed to be at a uniform 20o C) is 1482 m/s. (a) What is the wavelength of the waves emitted by the source? (b) What is the difference in frequency between the directly radiated waves and the waves reflected from a whale traveling directly toward the ship at 4.95 m/s? The ship is at rest in the water.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 75P (a).In problem first we have to calculate the frequency of wavelength,generally the wavelength can be calculated by velocity of source's sound divided by source's frequency. = v sfs. First we have to note down given that gives an idea how to solve and which formula we have to use Given data: The sound source of a ship’s sonar system operates at a frequency of f =18.s kHz. The speed of sound in water is v =14s2 m/s. Whale traveling directly toward the ship at v =4w95 m/s Then = v /f s s = 1482 m/s/18 × 10 Hz3 = 0.0824 m =...
