Speech transcript
light scattering is used to demonstrate the plane of vibration of the electric field vector of polarized light we a trough through
which the light is to propagate is filled with water the after turning on the carbon
arc the trace of the light is seen
weekly in the trough the polystyrene particles are added as scattering centers like beam becomes clearly visible
you but that the a
polarizing filter is rotated in the light beam initially the scattered light is
observed in a direction perpendicular to the beam of I'm
looking at the of
of of of of of of when the
filter is oriented in such a way that no scattered light is seen like Lehman trough are rotated around the vertical axis and scattered light is observed again of
