The values in the range of 10−15 cm2 to 10−14 cm2 have been reported by various authors for the capture cross-section of electrons at the traps in silver bromide grains. In this paper we have given a suitable value of this cross-section which is used for computing the track characteristics in nuclear emulsions (e.g. effective ionization, probability of development, grain density and mean gap length) and the ratio of the rate constant of recombination and trapping. Theoretical results agree well with the experimental observations and the available data of other workers and give a convincing support to our choice of this cross-section parameter.
