The Frequency Calculator during Doppler Effect in Relativistic Events will calculate the:

- Frequency of light during Doppler Effect in red shift phenomenon
- Frequency of light during Doppler Effect in blue shift phenomenon

The calculator also includes a units converter which allows you to convert "metres per second" to "speed of light in a vacuum" and vice versa, this is useful for computing the calculations in the same units and as a quick reference.

**Calculation Parameters:** All relativistic events are supposed to occur in a vacuum; any motion is one-dimensional; all systems are inertial. Speed of light in a vacuum is 299792458, you can alter this (to 300000000 for example) to allow computations in line with assumed parameters for specific calculations such as homework calculations or to work within an accepted tolerance
