PPL MCQ : MCQ on Polarisation

MCQ on Polarisation | PPL MCQ 

The phenomenon of polarisation proves that light consists of transverse waves. It can be demonstrated by using two tourmaline crystals, Nicol prism, or polaroids. A light wave in which all the vibrations of the electric vector E occur in a single direction, perpendicular to the direction of propagation is said to be a linearly polarised or a plane polarised light wave. The plane of vibration of plane polarised light is perpendicular to the plane of polarization.

Types of polarised light

(i) unpolarised light

(ii) plane polarised light

(ii) partially polarised light
