The change in a wave’s frequency when the source and observer are in motion relative to one another is known as what?

Answer:

THE DOPPLER EFFECT

The Doppler effect (or the Doppler shift) is the change in frequency or wavelength of a wave in relation to an observer who is moving relative to the wave source. It is named after the Austrian physicist Christian Doppler, who described the phenomenon in 1842.
