Suppose we rotate the linear polarizer we can maximize the transmitted beam. We can also do the same for the reflected beam.

We measure the angle of the linear polarizer that maximizes the transmitted beam to be 110 degrees

We measure the angle of the linear polarizer that maximizes the reflected beam to be 170 degrees.

**Now for the question**: Is this what is expected?

Answer - no. Since this cube transmits linearly polarized light for the linear polarizer's angle to be 110 degrees then to maximize the reflected light the angle of the polarizer must +/- 90 degrees from 110 degrees.

Is this reasoning correct??
