Amplitude tells us about the loudness of a certain sound. Decibels (dB) is the unit used to measure the amplitude. The sound that has an amplitude of 120 dB is obviously more louder than sound which has an amplitude of 100 dB.

A police car is traveling due east at a speed of 15.0 m/s relative to the earth. YoU are in a convertible following behind the police car. Your car is also moving due east at 15.0 m/s relative to the earth, so the speed of the police car relative to you is zero. The siren of the police car is emitting sound of frequency 500 Hz. The speed of sound in the still air is 340 m/s. (a)What is the speed of the sound waves relative to you? (b) What is the wavelength of the sound waves at your location? (C) What frequency do you detect?
