Can anyone tell me if the following is correct?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Traveling directly towards a source of light at some constant speed, we will measure its frequency to be higher (compared to rest frequency) than what we would expect when using Newton’s laws. Just as traveling away from the source, we would measure its frequency to be a little lower than we would expect it to be.

Thanks!
