Unpolarized light of intensity I0 = 950 W/m2 is incident upon two polarizers. The first has its polarizing axis vertical, and the axis of the second is rotated θ = 65° from the vertical.
a. What is the intensity of the light after it passes through the first polarizer in W/m2?
b. What is the intensity of the light after it passes through the second polarizer in W/m2?
Intensity of the light (first polarizer) (I₁) = 425 W/m²
Intensity of the light (second polarizer) (I₂) = 75.905 W/m²
