An apparatus has been designed to measure the angular distribution loss of potassium ions scattered in mercury vapor. The range of accelerating voltages was from 20 to 300 volts, and the range of scattering angles was from 60° to 150°. Preliminary curves have been obtained showing the angular distribution and energy loss. A comparison has been made with the theoretical curves of Massey, Mott, and Mohr. The results show what points must be more completely investigated.
