*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 1

### When ordinary light is incident on a number of glass plates, stacked one at top of other then :

Solution:

Explanation : When light is incident at polarising angle, a particular component of the electric field vector (i.e., a particular polarisation) completely passes to the other medium. Thus, the reflected light is completely polarised.

When a beam of unpolarized light is incident on the glass block, a certain amount of the incident vibration is reflected in a plane perpendicular to the plane of incidence and transmits the rest.

Thus reflected rays are completely polarized but not partially polarized.

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 2

### In passing plane polarized light through a quarter wave plate, the transmitted light was also plane polarized. Which of the following might be true?

Solution:

The correct answers are: The incident light could have vibration parallel to the optic axis, The incident light could have vibration perpendicular to the optic axis

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 3

### If the phase difference between two superposing waves is a half integral multiple of π then the resulting light

Solution:

The correct answers are: Can be circularly polarized , Can be elliptically polarized

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 4

Choose the correct statements :
If the phase difference between two superposing waves is an integral multiple of π then

Solution:

The correct answer is: The resulting light is plane polarized

QUESTION: 5

When ordinary light is incident on the upper surface of a glass slab at the polarizing angle then :

Solution:

The correct option is Option D.

When a beam of unpolarized light is incident on the glass block, a certain amount of the incident vibration is reflected in a plane perpendicular to the plane of incidence and transmits the rest.

Thus, the reflected ray is completely polarized and not partially polarized.

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 6

Choose the correct statement

Solution:

The correct answers are: Plane polarized light has varying intensity when seen through a rotating nicol prism and a zero minimum intensity, Circularly polarized light has no variation in intensity when seen through a rotating nicol prism, Elliptically polarized light varies in intensity when seen through a rotating nicol prism, with a non zero minimum intensity

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 7

The light coming from a Nicol prism shows no variation in intensity

Solution:

The correct answers are: The emergent light can be circularly polarized, The emergent light can be unpolarized

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 8

On passing plane polarized light through a quarter wave plate, the transmitted light was elliptically polarized. This implies :

Solution:

The correct answers are: The incident light has vibrations at an angle 30° with the optic axis, The incident light could have vibrations at an angle 60° with the optic axis, The incident light could have vibrations at any angle other than 0, 45° or 90° with the optic axis.

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 9

Which of the following determine the state of polarization of light resulting from the superposition of two light waves

Solution:

The correct answers are: The phase difference between the electric vector of the two superposing waves, The amplitudes of the superposing waves

*Multiple options can be correct
QUESTION: 10

On passing linearly polarized light through a halfwave plate,

Solution:

The correct answer is: The emergent light is linearly polarized
