sustantivo

An increase (or decrease) in the frequency of sound, light, or other waves as the source and observer move towards (or away from) each other. The effect causes the sudden change in pitch noticeable in a passing siren, as well as the red shift seen by astronomers.
Oraciones de ejemplo
  • The normal Doppler effect causes sound waves to get longer if the source of the sound is moving away - for example, a receding ambulance siren.
  • Basically the Doppler effect is that pitch increases the closer something gets to you, and it decreases the further away it gets.
