4. Explain Doppler's principle, and show that, all the other circum- 11 stances being the same, another sound is heard when the observer moves towards the source of sound, than when he moves away froin the source of sound,

A man at rest hears the sound of a whistle, the note of which is c. By what velocity should he move towards the whistle to hear c'. (Velocity of sound

340 m.)

5. Explain how by Kundt's experiment the velocity of sound in solids and gases may be determined.

SECTION II. 6. In a differential thermometer, consisting of two bulbs joined by a 10 bent tube which contains liquid, one of the bulbs is filled with oxygen and the other with nitrogen.

7. Explain how water may be cooled, and even frozen, by its own rapid 1.2 evaporation,
