Fraction of Kp2 decay-in-flight in the target is BR(Kp2)/BR(Km3) * decay probability ~ * (1.- exp (target radius / bgct) ) ~1.

momentum of Kp2 p+ 205MeV/c; b= 0.84

bgct ~ 100cm

target radius ~ 10cm

1- exp(-10/100) ~ 0.1

The number of Kp2 decay-in-flight in the target is comparable to the number of Km3 events

MC simulation (GEANT3) for Kp2 BG rejection (1) fiber size

(2) target thickness

(3) Kp2 BG fraction

Last meeting at KEK

Source of Kp2 BG(1)scatter in the spectrometer(2)dif in the spectrometer can be rejected by installing C0.

Fiber size and spatial resolution of K+ stopping position

K+ stopping position was determined as a function of fiber size by GEANT3.

Analysis method Method 1 :K+ stopping position was determined by 1 fiber position which has the maximum energy deposit.Method 2:K+ stopping position was determined by energy weighted average of 2 fiber positions which has the maximum and 2nd maximum energy deposit.

Kp2-dif fraction in Km3 sample

Kp2 decay-in-flight fraction was obtained as a function of target radius by a GEANT3 code.

C0(GEM) position was fixed and more realistic than the previous study.rGEM= 8cm, s=0.01cm

tracking c2

4 point tracking (C0, C2, C3, C4) with a c2 cut

m requirement by TOF

P>185 MeV/c or back-to-back events are rejected.

Most of survived Kp2 events after Km3 selection is p+ decay-in-flight before C0 chamber.

Resolution of K+ stopping position (s=0.07cm) is not considered.
