I will give a medal. Thanks! :)
Polarized sunglasses work by..
1. blocking light waves that vibrate in one plane.
2. gradually refracting light as it passes through the lenses.
3. bending light as it passes from air into the lenses.
4. reflecting most of the light that strikes the sunglasses.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Polarized sunglasses work 1 is correct Light passes as waves through the air. These waves vibrate in various directions. When light hits a reflective surface, all the reflected light then vibrates parallel/along to the surface. For example, light reflecting due the surface of water will vibrate in a horizontal direction. When light is scattered off atmospheric effects like fog or rain, the reflections are at all sorts of angles. Your polarized sunglasses will block out any horizontal components of the scattered light. This reduces brightness by 40%
