Check out the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doppler_effect
It's got some good formulas and links to other sites that let you simulate it.
So do we use the formula for the Doppler Effect in classical physics:
or must we adjust this because we are working with light, rather than sound?
