Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Bruce on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 11:12pm.

There are two polarizing filters that are out of alignment by 30 degrees. If the light of intensity 1.00 W/m^2 and initially polarized half-way between the two filters passes through the two filters, what is the intensity of the transmitted light?

I know the answer is 0.700 W/m^2, but I have no clue how to find that answer.
Thank you for any help!
