Electricity & Magne/sm Lecture 24, Slide 5 Clicker Question The molecular structure of a polarizer causes the component of the E field perpendicular to the Transmission Axis to be absorbed. Eo Suppose we have a beam traveling in the + z direc/on. At t = 0 and z = 0, the electric field is aligned along the posi/ve x axis and has a magnitude equal to Eo y z What is the component of Eo along a direc/on in the x − y plane that makes an angle of θ with respect to the x − axis? C) 0 D) Eo/sinθ E) Eo/cosθ θ B) Eocosθ s co Eo A) Eosinθ Eo θ y Electricity & Magne/sm Lecture 24, Slide 6 “I can't believe your teaching us the law of "Malus"(Malice). I thou...
