QUESTION: 1

### Unpolarized light of intensity. I0,  is incident on a series of 3 polarizing filters, the axis of the second filter is oriented at 45° to that of the first filter, while the axis of the third filter is oriented at 90° to that of the first filter. What fraction of the incident light that is transmitted through the third filter?

Solution:

Light through the first filter is I0= Incident intensity.
Through the second filter  Through the third filter, intensity is  *Answer can only contain numeric values
QUESTION: 2

### The critical angle of light in a certain substance is 45°. What is the polarising angle?

Solution:

Solution :- If  'n' is refractive index and ic is critical velocity,

n = 1/Sin ic = 1 / Sin 45 = 1.414

Now, According to Brewster's law , if  ' ip ' is polarising angle  then

n = tan ip

So , ​tan ip  = 1.414

i.e. ​ ip =  54.70

QUESTION: 3

### Unpolarized light is incident on two ideal polarizers in series, the polarizers are oriented so that no light emerges through the second polarizer. A third polarizer is now inserted between the first two and its orientation direction is continuously rotated through 180°. What is the maximum fraction of the incident power transmitted through all three polarizers?

Solution:

Let incident intensity be I
Intensity after first polarizer = Intensity after the second polarizer = I1 cosØ where Ø s the angle between the polarizer pass axis of the second polarizer and first polarizer
Intensity of light through the 3rd polarizer is Intensity of light through the 3rd polarizer is I= I2 cos2 θ
where θ is the angle between pass axis polarizer 2 and 3. For I3 to be maximum. Put because
the first and third polarizers are orthogonal Put  Fraction is 0.125

QUESTION: 5

A beam of light polarized in the x direction is travelling in the z direction. It passess through a polarizer, travels some distance, and reaches an analyser you can orient the pass axis of the analyzer only in the x or the y direction. You find that the intensity is three times smaller when the pass axis of the analyser is in the y direction than it was when the pass axis was in the x direction Find the angle between the pass axis of the polarizer and the x-axis (in degrees).

Solution:

If θ is the angle of polarizer’s pass axis with the x-axis and / is the intensity of the light beam between the polarizer and the analyzer. *Answer can only contain numeric values
QUESTION: 6

Unpolarized light is incident on a pair of ideal linear polarizers whose transmission axis make an angle of 45° with each other, the transmitted light intensity through both polarizers in what percentage of the incident intensity?

Solution:

Light incident = l0
Intensity of light through first polarizer = Intensity of light through second polarizer =  Percentage = = 25%

QUESTION: 7

A beam of light polarized in the x direction is travelling in the z direction. It passess through a polarizer, travels some distance, and reaches an analyser you can orient the pass axis of the analyzer only in the x or the y direction. You find that the intensity is three times smaller when the pass axis of the analyser is in the y direction than it was when the pass axis was in the x direction Suppose that the original light beam were polarized in the / direction, everything else remaining the same. What value of would you observe?

Solution:

Using the polarized light would change the beam intensity / between the polarizer and analyser but it would not change the ratio  *Answer can only contain numeric values
QUESTION: 8

The refractive indices of glass and water are 1.54 and 1.33. Which will be greater: the polarising angle for a beam incident from water to glass or that for a beam incident from glass to water?

Solution:

By Brewster’s law, the polarising angle p is given by
tan p = μ,
Where μ  is the refractive index of the second medium with respect to the first.
For water to glass, p = tan-1 (1.158) = 49.2°
For glass to water, p = tan-1 (0.864) = 40.8°
Thus, p is larger from water to glass.

QUESTION: 9

If the polarizing angle of a medium is 60°. Then find the angle of refraction, (in degrees)

Solution:

Polarizing angle is the angle of incidence for which the refracted and reflected rays are orthogonal.
θi = 60°
⇒ θreflected = 60°
⇒ θreflected = 90°- 60° = 30°
