Physics - Red Shift

View mindmap
  • Red Shift
    • Doppler effect
      • Wave changes freq. as wave source + observer move relative to each other
        • Wave source moving towards observer - wavelength decreases + freq. increases - BLUE SHIFTED
          • Opposite if wave moving away from observer
          • Faster Galaxy moves = larger shift
            • More distant Galaxy's are travelling faster
              • Universe expanding
