Unpolarised light is incident from the air on a plane surface of a material of refractive index \(\mu\). At a particular angle of incidence \(i\), it is found that the reflected and refracted rays are perpendicular to each other. Which of the following options is correct for this situation?

1. | the reflected light is polarised with its electric vector parallel to the plane of incidence. |

2. | the reflected light is polarised with its electric vector perpendicular to the plane of incidence. |

3. | $\mathrm{}$\(i = \text{sin}^{-1}\frac{1}{\mu}\) |

4. | \(i = \text{tan}^{-1}\frac{1}{\mu}\)$\mathrm{}$ |

In Young's double-slit experiment, the separation \(d\) between the slits is \(2~\text{mm}\), the wavelength \(\lambda\) of the light used is \(5896~\mathring{\text{A}}\) and distance \(D\) between the screen and slits is \(100~\text{cm}\). It is found that the angular width of the fringes is \(0.20^{\circ}\). To increase the fringe angular width to \(0.21^{\circ}\) (with same \(\lambda\) and \(D\)) the separation between the slits needs to be changed to:

1. \(1.8~\text{mm}\)

2. \(1.9~\text{mm}\)

3. \(2.1~\text{mm}\)

4. \(1.7~\text{mm}\)

Young’s double-slit experiment is first performed in air and then in a medium other than air. It is found that the \(8^\mathrm{th}\) bright fringe in the medium lies where the \(5^\mathrm{th}\) dark fringe lies in the air. The refractive index of the medium is nearly:

Two polaroids \(P_1\) and \(P_2\) are placed with their axis perpendicular to each other. Unpolarised light of intensity \(I_0\) is incident on \(P_1\). A third polaroid \(P_3\) is kept in between \(P_1\) and \(P_2\) such that its axis makes an angle \(45^\circ\) with that of \(P_1\). The intensity of transmitted light through \(P_2\) is:

1. \(\frac{I_0}{4}\)

2. \(\frac{I_0}{8}\)

3. \(\frac{I_0}{16}\)

4. \(\frac{I_0}{2}\)
