Main Document

Doppler Effect JS Model 

written by Matt Kennedy and Rachel Dixon
content provider: Wolfgang Christian

The Doppler Effect JS Model shows five different animations with different combinations of moving/stationary sources/detectors. The final animation shows what happens when a source exceeds the speed of sound.

The Doppler Effect JS Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.  It is also distributed as an ePub.
