Three polarizing disks whose planes are parallel and centered on common axis. The directions of their transmission axes relative to the vertical are respectively: θ1 = 33o clockwise, θ2 = 24o counter-clockwise, and θ3 = 23o clockwise. A beam of light polarized along the vertical is incident onto the first polarizer with an intensity of I0 = 30.0 W/m². Calculate the transmitted intensity through all three polarizers.
