## Figure shown a two slit arrangement with a source which emits unplolarised light. Pis a polariser with axis whose direction is not given. If I_0 is the intensity of the principal maxima when no polarizer is present, calculate in the present case, the intensity of the principal maxima as well as of the first minima.
