1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Three polarizing filters are stacked, with the polarizing axis of the second and third filters at 23.0° and 62.0°, respectively, to that of the first. If unpolarized light is incident on the stack, the light has intensity 75.0 W/cm^2 after it passes through the stack. If the incident intensity is kept constant, what is the intensity of the light after it has passed through the stack if the second polarizer is removed? 2. Relevant equations I=Imaxcos2(θ) 3. The attempt at a solution I don't understand what the question is asking. Is the light passing through multiple times? And if it is, wouldn't it just be 75(cos262°)?
