The Moliere formalism for multiple scattering of charged particles in various materials
requires knowledge of the elastic scattering form factors. The Thomas-Fermi model of
the atom is customarily used to obtain these functions. However, this is not accurate for
the light elements. The correct form factors for the four lighest elements are given.
Heavy beam parrticles can only be scattered thru a limited angle by the atomic electrons
and it is shown how to include this effect in the formalism.
