Question

# A train moves towards a stationary observer with a speed 34 ms$$^{-1}$$. The train sounds a whistle and its frequency registered by the observer is f$$_{1}$$. If the trains speed is reduced to 17 ms$$^{-1}$$, then the frequency registered is f$$_{2}$$. If the speed of the sound is 340 ms$$^{-1}$$, then the ratio f$$_{1}$$ / f$$_{2}$$ is:

A
18/19
B
1/2
C
2
D
19/18

Solution

## The correct option is D 19/18A  train moves towards a stationary observer with a speed $$V_s\ m/s$$. The train sounds a whistle and its frequency registered by the observer is $$f_1=n \dfrac {V}{V-V_s}$$. So for two different velocity the ratio of apparent frequencies will be:$$f_1/f_2=\dfrac {V-V_{s2}}{V-V_{s1}}$$Putting corresponding values in above equation will get,$$f_1/f_2=\dfrac {340-17}{340-34}=\dfrac{19}{18}$$.Physics
