The longitudinal and transverse polarizations of the outgoing proton were measured for the reaction 1H(e,e p) at four-momentum transfer squared of 0.5 to 3.5 GeV2. The ratio of the electric to magnetic form factors of the proton is proportional to the ratio of the transverse to longitudinal polarizations.
