(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. http://www.prep101.com/MCAT/102MCATPhysicsAnswers.pdf [Broken] number 15

2. As you can see I already have the answers, I think I'm just doing something wrong.

3. I already know that the answer will be 'away' making it either a or c. So first I plugged the equation given (f1 = 1.0005f2) to get f2 and got approx 1569.2

So then I plug the values into this equation Fdelta/ fs = v/c

Just at the first part of the equation, (subtracting to get delta...I notice that I get .784, which is exactly double the correct answer. What am I missing here? There seems to be no multiplying by .5 or dividing by 2 anywhere in the question. I'm sure it's something small.

Thanks for the help
