Physics 21 Fall, 2004 Practice Questions on Optics Some of these questions on optics have been adapted from questions on the Physics 21 final given at the end of the spring semester of 2004. Try to work them using only the equation sheet and the notes on optics that will be provided with the final. Problem 1. Consider the polarizers in this problem as “perfect.” After passing through the first polarizer, the electric field of a light wave is (in SI units) E = E 0 cos[6 . 0 × 10 15 t - 2 . 0 × 10 7 x ] ˆ j , with E 0 = 2 . 0 × 10 4 V/m. (a) What are the frequency and wavelength of this wave? (b) A second polarizer is oriented at 60 to the first. What is the magnitude and direction of the elec- tric field after passing through this second polar- izer? 60 O z y (c) A third polarizer is oriented in the z direction. What is the magnitude and direction of the elec- tric field after passing through the third polar- izer? Problem 2. Two slits that are d = 2 . 0 × 10 4 m apart are illuminated with monochromatic light with a wavelength of 600 nm.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
