Using de Broglie's equation provides an answer. An automobile moving at 25 m/s and having a mass of 910kg has a wavelength of 2.9 x 10^-38m-a wavelength far too small to be seen or detected, even with the most sensitive scientific instrument.

### When the wavelength of a spectral line emitted from an object increases which end of the visible light spectrum does not move toward and what is the objects motion relative to earth?

Increasing wavelength is an indication of a Doppler shift caused by an object moving away from the viewer. Longer wavelengths (of the visible spectrum) are redder, shorter wavelengths are bluer. Objects moving away from you have a red shift, objects moving toward you have a blue shift.

### What are Advantages of the invention of the wheel?

Moving large objects as in the blocks for the pyramids, leading to other inventions such as gears, which led to trains, automobiles and other forms of transportation

### What are some advantages to the invention of the wheel?

### The sound of a police siren that is moving away has wavelengths and one that is approaching has wavelengths.?

The sound of a police siren moving away from you will have longer wavelengths, resulting in a lower pitch or frequency. Conversely, a siren moving towards you will have shorter wavelengths, resulting in a higher pitch or frequency. This phenomenon is known as the Doppler effect.

### How do you be safe with moving objects?

keep distance with moving objects.

### Does moving objects have impulse?

yes moving objects have impulse

### All moving objects have?

All moving objects have Momentum.

### What are differences in colors of moving objects in space that are approaching and moving objects that are moving away?

Objects moving toward you will have a blue shift in their spectrum and objects moving away from you will have a red shift in their spectrum. This is known as a doppler shift.

### Does the law of inertia apply to moving or non moving objects?

The law of inertia applies to both moving and non-moving objects. It states that an object will remain at rest or continue moving at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force.

### Slow moving objects have more kinetic energy than fast moving objects true or false?

that is false as long as the objects have the same mass

### The waves in front of a moving sound source have?

shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies.

### What force slows moving objects?

Inertia is what slows down moving objects. 2nd Answer: Not even close . . . inertia would keep objects FROM slowing. Friction or running into another object will slow a moving object.
