The distributions of charge produced in water during irradiation with nearly monoenergetic electron beams of energies 10 to 32 MeV are described. The homogeneous charge detector which is employed is of simple design, and provides a means of measuring the number of electrons coming to rest at any point in the medium. The values of significant parameters derived from the experimental data are compared with those from the theoretical studies of others, and a qualitative explanation of the differences is given.
