The energyE and angular momentuml dependence of optical potential for fusion of16O+208Pb system, observed by Christleyet al , is expressed as a function of radial kinetic energy (ɛ) instead of explicitE andl dependence. It is shown that the effects of different channel couplings, which result in different effective potentials, can also be parametrized as a function ofɛ. A correlation is obtained between the energy dependent part of this effective potential and the maximum of the spin enhancement around the Coulomb barrier and both these quantities depend on the details of the channel couplings.
