  • Sajan sarthak sahoo thankyou
    Basal section of uniaxial is perpendicular to optical axis so the light from below travels through the crystal parallel to optic axis it never splits and behave as if isotrop...

    but optic axis is a direction along which there is no double refraction and if you say that the light passes parallel to the optic axis then the section perpendicular to basal sect...

    Because the basal section of uniaxial mineral is circular and is perpendicular to the optic axis so the light that pass through the crystal doesn't get splitted up into e ray and ...

    and the Rays reach the mineral in the form of orthoscopic illumination so the rays are perpendicular to the surface
