(ii) The sheet of Polaroid is now rotated in a plane perpendicular to the direction of travel of the light. What effect, if any, will this have on the intensity of the light seen?

2.A communication satellite is in orbit above the Earth\u2019s surface.

(a) The satellite\u2019s electrical system is powered by 20 000 photovoltaic cells, each of area 10 cm2. The intensity of the sunlight falling on the cells is 1.4 kW m\u20132. The cells produce 5.0 kW of electrical power. Calculate the efficiency of the cells in transferring solar energy to electrical energy.

(b) (i) The satellite generates a signal of power 5.0 kW and orbits at a height of 3.6\u00d7 104km above the Earth\u2019s surface. Calculate the intensity which is detected at the Earth\u2019s surface if the satellite transmits uniformly in all directions. Assume there is no absorption of the signal along its path.

Intensity =................................................
(2)

(ii) In practice, reflectors on the satellite focus all the 5.0 kW of transmitted power onto a small area of the Earth\u2019s surface. If this area is a circle of diameter 1000 km, calculate the intensity that would be detected there. Assume there is no absorption of the signal along its path.
