Unformatted text preview: Power output = [Power input] x [efficiency] Power input = [Power output]/[efficiency] = 2.6e6W/0.3 = 8.67e6 W A = Power/I = (8.67e6W)/(1100 W/m^2) = 7880 m^2 I = I max cos 2 θ => θ = acos(I/I max ) 1/2 a. (I/Imax) = (1/2.4), θ = acos(0.645) = 49.8 degrees etc. The average value of the cosine squared function is one-half, so the first polarizer transmits ½ the light. The second transmits cos 2 25 o = 0.822. So we have (0.822/2) = 0.411...
