Analysing Simple Motions Using the Doppler Effect--"Seeing" Sound
Stonawski, Tamás; Gálik, Tamás
Physics Education, v52 n1 Article 015002 Jan 2017
The Doppler effect has seen widespread use in the past hundred years. It is used for medical imaging, for measuring speed, temperature, direction, etc, and it makes the spatial relations of motion easy to map. The Doppler effect also allows GPS receivers to measure the speed of a vehicle significantly more accurately than dashboard speedometers. Its diverse applications have prompted us to revisit the simple motions from kinematics with the help of everyday objects in our experiments.
