A measurement of the radiolytic yield of nitric acid (G-value) was made by irradiating atmospheric air enclosed in a glass vessel with high-energy protons from an azimuthally varying field (AVF) cyclotron. The amounts of the nitric acid produced were experimentally determined, and those of the deposited energy were calculated using the stopping power data. The obtained G-value was 1.46±0.12.
