An expression has been obtained for the differential cross-section for the elastic scattering of intermediate energy charged particles by heavy nuclei, using a complex potential and employing the variational method due to Montroll and Greenberg. The potential considered is of the type V = -(V0+iW0) inside the nucleus and zZe2/r outside.
The expression obtained for the differential elastic scattering cross-section has been used in the case of scattering of 32 Mev protons from gold. These have been compared with the experimentally determined cross-sections. It has also been shown that the present method of calculation gives results which are in good agreement with those obtained by using the partial wave method.
