Cosmic-Ray Energy Spectra Between Ten and Several Hundred GeV/amu for Elements from _(18)Ar to _(25)Ni--Results from HEAO-3


Using the relativistic rise of energy loss as a measure of energy, we have determined the energy dependence of the abundances relative to _(26)Fe of the elements _(18)Ar, _(19)K, _(20)Ca, _(21)Sc, _(22)Ti, _(23)V, and _(28)Ni, from 10 to several hundred Ge V /amu. From the energy dependence of the observed Ar/Fe and Ca/Fe ratios we infer primary source ratios for these elements.
