Cross sections for elastic scattering of electrons from 26Mg have been measured in the momentum transfer range from ∼0.6 to ∼3.0 fm-1. The data have been analyzed to obtain a model-independent charge density distribution. The results are compared with the predictions of a shell-model calculation and a Hartree-Fock calculation based on the Skyrme SGII interaction. The systematics of 2s- and 1d-subshell filling are examined.
