Ejs Doppler Effect Model 

written by Juan Aguirregabiria
edited by Wolfgang Christian

The Ejs Doppler Effect model displays the detection of sound waves from a moving source and the change in frequency of the detected wave via the Doppler effect. In addition to the wave fronts from the source a graph depicting the time of emission and time of detection of each of the wave fronts is given.  The speed of sound, the velocity of the source and the position and velocity of the detector can be changed via text boxes.  You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.  

Ejs Doppler Effect model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_ehu_waves_doppler.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.  Additional Ejs models for wave optics are available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
