Light Intensity transmitted through the polarized and analyzer

  1. Feb 29, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Here is the question:Unpolarized light of intesity Io is incident on a polarizer-analyzer pair. If the angle between the polarizer and analyzer is 21°, what light intensity is transmitted through the polarizer and analyzer respectively?
    Your answers will be in terms of Io.

    Tbh i just need to find out how to get the unpolarized light of intensity.

    givens: angle measure = 21
    So far...i don't know how to do this one.

    2. Relevant equations
    Equations: I=Iocos^2theta
    1/2Io



    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't have any attempts as i don't know what to do.
