Abstract

The  differential  scattering  cross  sections  of  electron  -  silver  atom  are calculated  using the  Eikonal approximation  at incident energies of  50 eV, 60 eV and 70 eV, with the  Lenz-Jensen potential. Results  obtained are in good agreement  with  the  NIST SRD 64  at scattering angles of about 80 to 180 degrees; and are in very good agreement with the Born approximation between 30 to 180 degrees
