Q 8.9: A train sounds its horn before it sets off from the station and an observer waiting on the platform estimates its frequency at 1200 Hz. The trains then moves off and accelerates steadily. Fifty seconds after departure, the driver sounds the horn again and the platform observer estimates the frequency of 1140 Hz. Calculate the train speed 50 s after departure.
