Doppler effect for light Calculator

Calculates the Doppler shift in wavelength of light.

The forward angle of light source θ is set as 180 (recede), 0 (approach), 90 (laterally).

Doppler effect for light
The faster the light source recedes, the redder its color becomes.

[1]  2017/09/08 23:37   Male / 40 years old level / A teacher / A researcher / Very /
Purpose of use
Calculation of doppler effect of star light and cosmic microwave background relative to spaceship in space travel at velocities approaching the speed of light (>0.7 c).

Purpose of use
Helping me to understand how to calculate distances in light years?
Comment/Request
Solve the Doppler equation to determine the relative velocity as a percentage of the speed of light (c) of an object being tracked by an active radar transmitting at 10 terahertz and receiving signals at 9.5 Terahertz. Is the object moving toward the radar or away from the radar? How fast is the relative velocity in kilometers per second?"
