## Main Question or Discussion Point

Does it removes either the electric wave of magnetic wave component of the EM wave?

And if so, won't the wave exiting the polariser not a EM wave anymore? More like an E wave or M wave.

If the above argument is correct, won't the speed of light become[tex]\frac{1}{\sqrt{\epsilon_{0}}}[/tex] or [tex]\frac{1}{\sqrt{\mu_{0}}}[/tex]
