Question

# A plane polarized light is incident on a polariser with its pass axis making angle θ with x-axis, as shown in the figure. At four different values of θ,θ=8o,38o,188o and 218o, the observed intensities are same. What is the angle between the direction of polarization and x-axis

Solution

## The correct option is A 203oLet the angle between polarization direction and x-axis be θ′.So angle between polarisation direction and pass axis of polariser is (θ′−θ)Given θ=8o,88o,188o,218o∴I=Iocos2(θ′−θ)For θ′=203o intensities are same
