Question

# When an unpolarized light of intensity $${I}_{0}$$ is incident on a polarizing sheet, the intensity of the light which does not get transmitted is:

A
12I0
B
14I0
C
Zero
D
I0

Solution

## The correct option is A $$\dfrac{1}{2} {I}_{0}$$$$I={ I }_{ 0 }\cos ^{ 2 }{ \theta }$$Intensity of polarized light $$=\dfrac { { I }_{ 0 } }{ 2 }$$$$\therefore$$ Intensity of untransmitted light $$={ I }_{ 0 }-\dfrac { { I }_{ 0 } }{ 2 } =\dfrac { { I }_{ 0 } }{ 2 }$$Physics
