Abstract

A very simple estimate is made of the baryon rapidity distribution to be expected from central collisions of high energy nuclei. This estimate is based upon straight-line trajectories and some average rapidity loss per nucleon-nucleon collision. It is found that U + U will become transparent at a beam energy of about 500 GeV/nucleon, or 15 + 15 GeV/nucleon for colliding beams. NUCLEAR REACTIONS Relativistic nuclear collisions, straight-line trajectories, stopping power, baryon rapidity distribution.
