320 CHAPTER 24 24.33 The locations of the dark fringes (minima) mark the edges of the maxima, and the widths of the maxima equals the spacing between successive minima. At the locations of the minima, ( ) sin m ma θ λ = and () 9 -3 tan sin 500 10 m 1.20 m 1.20 mm 0.500 10 m mmm yL L m L a mm θθ   =≈=     × == × ( Then, ) 1.20 mm ym ∆=∆ and for successive minima, 1 m = .
