The Basic Operation of the Radar Gun from a Stationary Patrol Car
Analyze the basic operation of the radar gun from a stationary patrol car.
Analyze the physical principle that the radar gun uses to measure the speed of a moving vehicle, including any relevant equations. Issues related to the direction the car is moving with respect to the direction in which the gun is pointing. Discuss any changes in the physics of the radar gun in a moving vehicle and any issues or inaccuracies that arise in the speed detection process (2+ for E).
