1-1/2" tailpiece to 2" trap?


Hi;
I've got what I think is a 1-1/2" brass tailpiece with dishwasher tee into what looks like 2" plastic trap.
I measured by running string around the circumference of each part and divided that by pi to get the diameter, so I am talking outside diameters.
In any case, the trap is definitely a larger outside diameter than the tailpiece.

The plastic nut securing the tailpiece into the trap is cracked/broken, and I just want to make sure I get the correct size. Alternatively, I can just take the broke nut off, but I really don't want to disturb the whole thing until I have the part to fix it.
I'll also replace the rubber gasket/seal on both the trap and the sink.

Any advice?
Thanks
FW

They are both nominal 1.5". Buy a 1.5" compression nut and washer.

Thanks. I assume my local DIY store will have that.
