We have measured elastic electron-proton scattering cross sections in the range of four-momentum transfers from 7 F^-2[0.27 (GeV/c)^2] to 150 F^-2 [5.84 (GeV/c)^2] and at scattered electron angles of between 20° and 34° in the laboratory. The estimated errors in the cross sections range from ±2.1% at the lowest momentum transfer to ±9.6% at the highest. Both the scattered electron and the recoil proton were detected, resulting in an overdetermination of the kinematics. When the constraint of a coincident proton is removed, there is no significant change in the estimated cross sections.
