      Using Jastrow form for the nuclear wave function, single-particle distributions in the momentum space are extracted for the correlation functions corresponding to the Reid soft core, Hamada-Johnston and Ohmura-Morita-Yamada (OMY) hard core potentials. The correlations functions used for this purpose are the numerical solutions of the Schrödinger type equation for the realistic potentials and analytical form for the OMY potential. It is found that the calculated momentum distributions, with Woods-Saxon basis functions, differ significantly beyond 400 MeV/c. Comparison with the experimental proton momentum distribution from (γ, p) reaction suggests that while the OMY potential results are nearer to the experimental values, the realistic potentials do not introduce the high momentum components to the required extent.
