Destructive interference between these superposed rays will therefore occur, and, instead of a continuous maximum illumination in the direction of minimum
**deviation**, we should expect to find alternations of brightness and darkness. - The mathematical discussion of Airy showed that the primary rainbow is not situated directly on the line of minimum
**deviation**, but at a slightly greater value; this means that the true angular radius of the bow is a little less than that derived from the geometrical theory. - A like
