Question details

Quality control systems have been developed to remotely measure the diameter of wires using diffraction. A wire with a stated diameter of 170 μm 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?
