The interaction of high energy neutrons with heavy nuclei is studied under the assumption that the nucleus may be described by the statistical model. A detailed study is made of the energy transferred to the nucleus, the angular distribution of emerging particles, and the effective cross section for neutrons passing through nuclear matter. A summary of the results is given in the final section of the paper.
