Unformatted text preview: 36. As the unpolarized beam of intensity I0 passes the first polarizer, its intensity is reduced to 1 I0 . After 2 passing through the second polarizer, for which the direction of polarization is at an angle θ from that of the first one, the intensity is I = 1 I0 cos2 θ = 1 I0 . Thus, cos2 θ = 2/3, which leads to θ = 35◦ . 2 3 ...
