    hi guys can you explain to me simply on intensity of a wave and polarisation of waves

    intensity is to do with the amplitude of a wave, a light wave is more intense if it carries more energy. Intensity and frequency do not effect each other!

    Polarisation is when you filter waves which oscillate in more than one direction and you block some of these oscillations to get a polarised wave that oscillates in one plane only.
