PHYS 1102 Experiment 4 Homework NAME:_________________________ 1. What is the difference between polarized and unpolarized light? 2. If the angle between the incident electric field and a polarizer’s transmission axis is 40 0 , what fraction of the incident intensity is transmitted? 3. If a second polarizer is added to the situation in question 2 with transmission axis at 75 0 with respect to initial direction of the electric field, what fraction of the original

Unformatted text preview: intensity is now transmitted? 4. Light shines through two polarizers. Initially both transmission axes are aligned and then the second polarizer is rotated while the other remains fixed. Sketch the intensity of the transmitted light as a function of the angle through which the second polarizer is rotated. I 270 180 360 90 Degrees...
