From plotting a graph of Intensity vs. relative angle, there was a linear relationship. From this graph in Graphical Analysis, we obtained a slope (m) and a y-intercept (b). We then have to look at the original expression for the Law of Malus. My question is: What physical parameters do the slope and y-intercept represent?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
