C HAPTER 24 Quick Quizzes 1. (b). The outer edges of the central maximum occur where sin a θ λ = ± . Thus, as a , the width of the slit, becomes smaller, the width of the central maximum will increase. 2. The compact disc. The tracks of information on a compact disc are much closer together than on a phonograph record. As a result, the diffraction maxima from the compact disc will be farther apart than those from the record. 269
