Integrated Concepts

(a) On a day when the intensity of sunlight is 1.00 kW / m2 , a circular lens 0.200 m in diameter focuses light onto water in a black beaker. Two polarizing sheets of plastic are placed in front of the lens with their axes at an angle of 20.0º. Assuming the sunlight is unpolarized and the polarizers are 100% efficient, what is the initial rate of heating of the water in ºC / s , assuming it is 80.0% absorbed? The aluminum beaker has a mass of 30.0 grams and contains 250 grams of water. (b) Do the polarizing filters get hot? Explain.
