An intercomparison is carried out for some earlier approaches to the calculation of the normalized Mott cross section, as well as the approach proposed by the authors of the present work. It is demonstrated that applying the proposed method, along with the method of Lijian et al., is preferable for relevant calculations.

At energies higher than 10 MeV, the results are very close to those of 10 MeV, according to , since β in this case is close to 1.
