Q1. Doppler effect is independent of

•  Distance between source and listener
•  Velocity of source
•  Velocity of listener
•  None of these

Q2. A source and an observer approach each other with same velocity 50 m/s. If the apparent frequency is 435 s–1, then the real frequency is

•  320 sec-1
•  360 sec-1
•  390 sec-1
•  420 sec-1

Q3. A source emits a sound of frequency of 400 Hz, but the listener hears it to be 390 Hz. Then

•  The listener is moving towards the source
•  The source is moving towards the listener
•  The listener is moving away from the source
•  The listener has a defective ear

Q4. A source and an observer are moving towards each other with a speed equal to v/2 where v is the speed of sound. The source is emitting sound of frequency n. The frequency heard by the observer will be

•  Zero
•  n
•  n/3
•  3n

Q5. A police car moving at 22 m/s, chases a motorcyclist. The police man sounds his horn at 176 Hz, while both of them move towards a stationary siren of frequency 165 Hz. Calculate the speed of the motorcycle, if it is given that he does not observes any beats

•  33 m/s
•  22 m/s
•  Zero
•  11 m/s

Q6. An observer moves towards a stationary source of sound with a speed 1/5th of the speed of sound. The wavelength and frequency of the source emitted are Î» and f respectively. The apparent frequency and wavelength recorded by the observer are respectively

•  1.2f, Î»
•  f, 1.2Î»
•  0.8f, 0.8Î»
•  1.2f, 1.2Î»

Q7. When an engine passes near to a stationary observer then its apparent frequencies occurs in the ratio 5/3. If the velocity of engine is

•  540 m/s
•  270 m/s
•  85 m/s
•  52.5 m/s

Q8. A siren placed at a railway platform is emitting sound of frequency 5 kHz. A passenger sitting in a moving train A records a frequency of 5.5 kHz while the train approaches the siren. During his return journey in a different train B he records a frequency of 6.0 kHz while approaching the same siren. The ratio of the velocity of train B to that of train A is

•  242/252
•  2
•  5/6
•  11/6

Q9. A racing car moving towards a cliff, sounds its horn. The driver observes that the sound reflected from the cliff has a pitch one octave higher than the actual sound of the horn. If v is the velocity of sound, then the velocity of the car is

•  v/ √2
•  v/2
•  v/3
•  v/4

Q10. A person carrying a whistle emitting continuously a note of 272 Hz is running towards a reflecting surface with a speed of 18 km/hour. The speed of sound in air is 345ms–1. The number of beats heard by him is

•  4
•  6
•  8
•  3
