Polarisation teachers notes

IB Physics: Polarisation teachers notes

The analogy of waves in a string passing through a slit is often used to introduce the concept of polarisation. Design an experiment to test if you can actually polarise a wave in a string and if the amplitude of the wave passing through an angled slit is given by Aocosθ.I haven"t tried this one myself yet but I"d try with something like a climbing rope and a slit made of two shiny poles.
