Calculations of the mean and standard error of the added Cerenkov component from knock-on electrons for sample counters with refractive indices ranging from n = 1.03 to n = 1.49 are presented. We find that this contribution to the Cerenkov resolution is significant, but not dominant, for typical detector parameters.
