particle.could be used to study its focusing and bending properties.
Orbits representing various momenta were plotted from several
positions.along the entrance edge and at different angles to select
the central-K-meson momentum, the detector. position, and-the
orientation of the. magnet with the beam which would give -the best
collection of K mesons and best.rejection of pions. These orbits
predicted. a complete. separation between the 300-Mev/c K mesons
and 394-Mev/c pions. That this was not achieved was probably
due to scattering in the-degrader, shielding, and magnet.structure,
and to secondary-pion sources inside -and .outside the Bevatronl. In
the final setup wire orbits in the analyzing magnet-and test plates
at various positions along the beam checked the correctness of the
plotted orbits, except that the central momentum at the exit of the
Bevatron was found to be 427 Mev/c. This decrease was accounted.
for by-the energy loss in the wall of the vacuum tank-and possibly by
a-small uncertainty in our knowledge of the Bevatron field and target
