We want to rotate the direction of polarization of a beam of polarized light through 90 degrees by sending the beam through one or more polarizing sheets. (a) What is the mini-mum number of sheets required? (b) What is the minimum number of sheets required if the transmitted intensity is to be more than 60% of the original intensity?
