GATE Physics Mock Test Series - 7 - Question 57

In a Young’s experiment the upper slit is covered by a thin transparent plate of refractive index 1.1 and the lower slit is covered by another thin transparent plate of refractive index 1.9 but of thickness half the thickness of the first one. It is observed that the point O on the screen, where the central maxima fall before the insertion of the plates, now has 3/4th of the original intensity. It is also observed that what used to be the 4th maxima earlier lies below O whereas the 4th minimum is above O. Calculate the thickness (μm) of the upper plate. Take the wavelength of light to be 7200 A° and neglect any absorption of light.

Total thickness =

GATE Physics Mock Test Series - 7 - Question 58

A beam of plane-polarized light falls on a polarizer which rotates about the axis of the ray with angular velocity ω= 21 rad/s. Find the energy (mJ) of light passing through the polarizer per one revolution if the flux of energy of the incident ray is equal to φ = 4.0 m W.

Detailed Solution for GATE Physics Mock Test Series - 7 - Question 58

When the polarizer rotates with angular velocity ω its instantaneous principal direction makes angle ωt from a reference direction which we choose to be along the direction of vibration of the plane polarized incident light. The transmitted flux at this instant is  ωt and the total energy passing through the polarizer per revolution is
