Abstract:

The concept of Target Mass and Effective Target Mass is discussed. Evidence is presented which questions the validity of attempting to relate the Effective Target Mass to the concept of a virtual pion surrounding the nucleon. Relations between the 4-momentum transfer, the quantity E - P cos theta of the recoil nucleon and the Effective Target Mass are derived which show in conjunction with experimental data that the Effective Target Mass of the order of a pion mass occurs accidentally.
