Short Answer

Only of the intensity of a polarized light wave passes through a polarizing filter. What is the angle between the electric field and the axis of the filter?

Angle between field of force and also the axis of the filter,

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step1: Polarizing filter

Horizontal polarizing occurs when light reflects off horizontal surfaces like the road, water, or snow. A vertically oriented polarized filter will reduce glare while still allowing many light to experience. A polarized filter on your camera can assist decrease glare. The identical principle applies to polarized sunglasses.

Step2: Calculate 

We may find angle by staring the subsequent relation :

We are now calculating for
