Özet

In this study, we have suggested a new empirical formula to reproduce the cross sections of the (n, p) reactions at 14-15 MeV for the neutron incident energy. This formula obtained using the asymmetry parameters represents a modification to the original formula of Levkovskii. The resulting modified formulae yielded cross sections, representing smaller chi(2) deviations from experimental values, and values much closer to unity as compared with those calculated using Levkovskii's original formula. The results obtained have been discussed and compared with the existing formulae, and found to be well in agreement, when used to correlate the available experimental sigma(n, p) data of different nuclei.
