This physics video tutorial provides a basic introduction into the doppler effect of moving sound waves. it explains how to solve doppler effect problems in physics. Any time the source moves toward the observer or if the observer moves toward the source, the detected frequency will increase - that is - the observed frequency will be greater than the frequency emitted by the source. The source can be an ambulance truck or a police siren. If the source moves away from the observer or if the observer moves away from the source, the detected frequency will decrease. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems of calculated the frequency detected by the observer.
