A source of sound is moving along a circular orbit of radius 3 meters with an angular velocity of 10 rad /s. A sound detector far away from the source is executing linear simple harmonic motion along the line BD with an amplitude BC = CD = 6 meters. The frequency of oscillation of the detector is 5/π per second. The source is at the point A when the detector is at the point B. If the source emits a continuous sound wave of frequency 340 Hz, find the maximum and the minimum frequencies recorded by the detector.

Hello Student,
Please find the answer to your question
The angular frequency of the detector = 2πv
= 2π x 5/π = 10 rad/s
The angular frequency of the detector matches with that of the source.
236-771_6.png
⇒ When the detector is at C moving towards D, the source is at A1 moving leftwards. It is in this situation that the frequency heard is minimum
v’ = v [v – v 0/v + vs] = 340 x (340 – 60)/(340 + 30) = 257.3 Hz
Again when the detector is at C moving towards B, the source is at A3­ moving rightward. It is in this situation that the frequency heard is maximum.
v” = v[ v + v0/v – vs] = 340 x (340 + 60)/(340 – 30)= 438.7 Hz

Thanks
