Mastering Physics Solutions: Doppler Shift

On December 19, 2011, in Chapter 14: Sound, by Mastering Physics Solutions

Part A = traveling away from the listener
Part B = medium (such as air or water)
Part C = traveling toward the source
Part D = medium
Part E = 1/2fs
Part F = 0
Part G = It approaches infinity.

The velocity of the source is positive if the source is ______________. Note that this equation may not use the sign convention you are accustomed to. Think about the physical situation before answering.
