Cross sections for the 90,92,94Zr(p,n) reactions were measured at energies of
79.2 and 119.4 MeV. A phenomenological model was developed to describe the
variation with bombarding energy of the position of the L=1 peak observed in
these and other (p,n) reactions. The model yields the splitting between the
giant dipole and giant spin dipole resonances. Values of these splittings are
obtained for isotopes of Zr and Sn and for 208Pb.
