1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A beam of light is composed of a mixture of unpolarized and linearly polarized waves. The beam is analyzed with a polarizer. As the transmission axis is rotated, the transmitted irradiance varies from a maximum I[max] to a minimum of 1/3 I[max]. What is the ratio of the irradiances of the polarized and unpolarized beams? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution i got the ratio as 1. can u verify my answer?
