Question

Explain briefly how sunlight is polarised by scattering through atmospheric particles.

Solution

Unpolarized light scattering from air molecules shakes their electrons perpendicular to the direction of the original ray. The scattered light therefore has a polarisation perpendicular to the original direction and none parallel to the original direction.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
