Doppler effect experiments

A few weeks ago, two students from the University of Salzburg have started to create short videos in which they present various experiments demonstrating the Doppler effect.

These videos will be presented by the Christian Doppler Fonds on and range from simple setups you can try at home to more involved ones which are well-suited for science classes in school. – and we are delighted that several of them use phyphox to determine the frequency shift using the Doppler experiment included in phyphox, which also calculates the corresponding velocity right away.

Unfortunately, these videos are only available in German, but if you are familiar with the Doppler effect, you should be able to easily follow their experimental setup just from the images. Here are some of the experiments using phyphox:
