I 44 ◦ 74 ◦ I If the first polarizer is rotated at an angle of 44 ◦ with respect to vertical and the sec- ond at an angle 74 ◦ with respect to vertical, what is the beam intensity I after the second polarizer? 1. I = 1 16 I 2. I = 7 16 I 3. I = 5 16 I 4. I = 3 16 I 5. I = 1 8 I 6. I = 1 4 I 7. I = 1 2 I 8. I = 3 8 I 9. I = 9 16 I 10. I = 5 8 I Question 2, chap 33, sect 5. part 1 of 1 10 points At what distance from a 65 W electromag- netic wave point source (like a light bulb) is the amplitude of the electric field 8 V / m? All quantities given here are in the SI units. Answer in units of m. Question 3, chap 33, sect 5. part 1 of 1 10 points A 28 kW beam of radiation is incident nor- mally on a surface that reflects half of the radiation. The speed of light is 3 × 10 8 m / s. What is the force on this surface? Answer in units of mN. Question 4, chap 33, sect 5. part 1 of 1 10 points Consider a monochromatic electromagnetic plane wave propagating in the y direction. At a particular point in space, the magnitude of the electric field is pointing in the positive z-direction. The permeability of free space is 1 . 25664 × 10 − 6 N / A 2 , the permittivity of free space is 8 . 85419 × 10 − 12 C 2 / N / m 2 and speed of light is 2 . 99792 × 10 8 m / s. y z x E wave propagation What are the directions of the instanta- neous magnetic field and the instantaneous Poynting vector respectively?...
