Charge exchange angular distributions for the reaction He3(-, 0)H3 are calculated using realistic nuclear form factors obtained from electron scattering experiments in the Glauber multiple scattering formalism. It is found that the charge exchange scattering is not very sensitive to the magnetic form factors at low q and, in particular, is not sensitive to changes in the mean square magnetic radius at the ±5% level. Calculations are also compared with the most recent experimental results. NUCLEAR REACTIONS He3(-, 0)H3, nuclear structure form factors, Glauber multiple scattering theory.
