A Listener is at Rest with Respect to the Source of Sound. a Wind Starts Blowing Along the Line Joining the Source - Physics

Short Note

A listener is at rest with respect to the source of sound. A wind starts blowing along the line joining the source and the observer. Which of the following quantities do not change?
(a) Frequency
(b) Velocity of sound
(c) Wavelength
(d) Time period

Solution

(a) Frequency
(d) Time period

The frequency does not change. Hence, the time period (inverse of frequency) also remains the same.
Due to wind, the relative velocity of sound changes. Thus, the wavelength also changes so as to keep the frequency the same. (As \[v = \nu\lambda\])

Concept: Wave Motion
