A parallel beam of unpolarized light in air is at an angle of 55° on a plane glass surface. If the reflected beam is completely plane-polarized, find the refractive index of the glass and the angle of the transmitted beam.
Calculate the polarizing angle for the light traveling from the water of refractive index 1.33 to a glass of refractive index 1.53.
The critical angle for light in a certain substance is 45°. What is the polarizing angle?
A beam of light is incident at a polarizing angle on a piece of transparent material of refractive index 6.2. What is the angle of refraction for the transmitted beam?
The polarizing angle for a medium is 60°. Calculate the velocity of light in the medium.
Define polarization. Prove that the light is a transverse wave.
