problem 1: Determine the polarizing angle of a medium of refractive index 1.732?
problem 2: Sketch the variation of intensity of interference pattern in Young’s double slit experiment.
problem 3: Find out the ratio of fringe width of bright and dark fringes in Young’s double slit experiment?
problem 4: What is the outcome on interference fringes in Young’s double slit experiment if one slit is covered?
problem 5: A polarizer and analyzer are so oriented that the intensity of transmitted light is maximum. If the analyzer is rotated via 600 what fraction of maximum light is transmitted?
problem 6: Describe the phenomenon of diffraction of light at a single slit. Illustrate graphically the variation of intensity with angle in the diffraction pattern. What is meant by the word angular resolution of a telescope?
problem 7: What do you understand by the term polarization of light? What are the plane of polarization and plane of vibration? Describe polarization:
a) By scattering.
b) By reflection.
problem 8: Describe Young’s double slit experiment of interference of light waves. Compute the path difference between interfering waves and give conditions for maxima and minima. Get the expression for dark and bright fringes.
