Unpolarized light with an intensity of 22.4 lux passes through a polarizer whose transmission axis is vertically oriented. What is the direction of the polarized beam and intensity of the transmitted light? If the polarizer's transmission axis is at an angle of 69.0° with the vertical, what is the intensity of the transmitted light and its direction?
