Question

In one of the original Doppler experiments, a tuba was playedon a moving flat train car at a frequency of 75 Hz., and a secondidentical tuba played the same tone while at rest in the railwaystation. What beat frequency was heard if the train car approachedthe station at a speed of 10.0 m/s?

Beat freq is the difference between the two observedfrequencies. The sound heard from the stationary tuba is 75 Hz.From the moving tuba?
\(\displaystyle{f}_{{{o}{b}{s}}}={{f}_{{{s}{o}{u}{r}{c}{e}}}{\left(\frac{{v}}{{v}}-{v}_{{{s}{o}{u}{r}{c}{e}}}\right)}}={75}\cdot{\left(\frac{{343}}{{{343}-{10}}}\right)}={77.25}{H}{z}\)
So the beat freq was:77.25 - 75 = 2.25 Hz

The top string of a guitar has a fundamental frequency of 33O Hz when it is allowed to vibrate as a whole, along all its 64.0-cm length from the neck to the bridge. A fret is provided for limiting vibration to just the lower two thirds of the string, If the string is pressed down at this fret and plucked, what is the new fundamental frequency? The guitarist can play a "natural harmonic" by gently touching the string at the location of this fret and plucking the string at about one sixth of the way along its length from the bridge. What frequency will be heard then?
