3B40.25 - Doppler Effect - Rotator App.
Make sure the rotators are in good shape. Tighten the desired arm securely and rotate at the desired speed.
CAUTION: Stay out of the way of the rotating arm when adjusting the speed.
Plug the generator into the auxiliary input of the amplifier. Plug the speaker that is on the yardstick into the speaker outputs of the amplifier. Swing the speaker back and forth and listen to the Doppler shift.
