23.56. Set Up: Figure 23.29 in the textbook shows that Solve: As increases, differs more from The blue light is deviated more. 23.57. Set Up: For unpolarized light incident on a filter, and the light is linearly polarized along the filter axis. For polarized light incident on a filter, where is the intensity of the incident light, and the emerging light is linearly polarized along the filter axis. Solve: (a) After the first filter, and the light is polarized. After the second filter (b) The light is linearly polarized along the axis of the second filter. 23.58. Set Up: After passing through the first filter the light is linearly polarized along the filter axis. After the second filter, where is the angle between the axes of the two filters. Solve: (a) (b) (c) 23.59. Set Up: When unpolarized light passes through a polarizer the intensity is reduced by a factor of and the transmitted light is polarized along the axis of the polarizer. When polarized light of intensity is incident on a polarizer, the transmitted intensity is
