Quality control systems have been developed to remotely measure
the diameter of wires using diffraction. A wire with a stated
diameter of 170 _m blocks the beam of a 633 nm laser, producing a
diffraction pattern on a screen 50.0 cm distant. The width of the
central maximum is measured to be 3.77 mm.
a. What is the diameter of the wire?
b. The wire should have a diameter precisely within 1% of the
stated value. Does this wire pass the test?
The wire should have a diameter precisely within 1 of the stated
value. Does this wire pass the test?

No

Yes
