Doppler effect

This simulates propagation of circular mechanical wave in space. Observer's perception of wave's frequency is affect by motion of wave source and by motion of the observer. Note that frequency change is different when source approaches the observer vs. when observer approaches the wave source (their relative velocity stays the same).
