Abstract The interactions of high-energy protons with the carbon and oxygen atoms of a Plexiglas baffle of a Wilson chamber were studied. The percentage of various types of interaction was determined and compared with previous experimental and theoretical data. The results confirm the hypothesis of a substructure instantaneously formed in the collision of the light nucleus. The angular distribution between the fast secondary and the primary is compared with the results obtained by the Monte Carlo method. The experimental angular distribution is in agreement with the hypothesis of the existence of a substructure. The experimental angular distribution between the two fast secondaries of stars with three branches is non-symmetrical with respect to 90 deg . (J.S.R.)
