Doppler Effect

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Please help me with refreshing the Doppler Effect from Physics 101.

On a straight highway a police car is chasing three criminals’ cars each equipped with an unbelievably advanced spectrometer. The first car races faster, the second at the same exactly speed, and the third slower than the police car.

Looking back at the police’s lights criminals in the first car see those lights with a red spectral shift, in the second exactly as emitted with no shift, and in the third car with a blue shift.

Please respond just with YES if it is right, or NO if it is not.

Thank you for attention.
