you are to determine the amount of sugar dissolved in solution. how can you use polaroid filters to complete the task?

  • physics -

    Polarimetry, or polarization, determines sucrose concentration by passing polarized light through a solution.

    It determines the sugar content of solutions by measuring the angle of rotation of the plane of polarization of a light beam. The amount of rotation is proportional to the concentration of the solution
