    Root-mean square radii of the 1g 9 2, 2p 1 2 and 2p 3 2 in the isotopes of tin with A = 112, 116, 118, 120 and 124 have been determined from a DWBA analysis of crosssection data from the sub-Coulomb (t, α) reaction. The differential cross sections for the (t, α) reaction were measured at lab angles in the range from 60° to 160° for triton energies in the range from 4.75 MeV to 5.25 MeV. Spectroscopic factors of the populated states were obtained from a sum rule analysis of published proton stripping and pickup reactions on the isotopes of tin. The measured orbit sizes are compared with the results of Hartree-Fock calculations and the systematic features of the asymptotic proton wave functions are discussed. © 1982.
