Two cars are approaching


Two cars are approaching each other at an equal speed of $7.2 \mathrm{~km} / \mathrm{hr}$. When they see each other, both blow horns having frequency of $676 \mathrm{~Hz}$. The beat frequency heard by each driver will be ____________$\mathrm{Hz}$. [Velocity of sound in air is 340 $\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{s} .]$


Frequency of sound heard by car- 1 , which comes by reflection from car- 2



Frequency of sound coming directly from car-2


$\therefore \mathrm{f}_{1}-\mathrm{f}_{2}=\mathrm{f}_{0}\left(\frac{342}{338}\right)\left(\frac{342}{338}-1\right)=8.09 \simeq 8$
