The isotope dependence in the angular distribution of electron-capture cross sections for protons and deuterons with equal velocity (E=40 keV/u) colliding with atomic hydrogen or deuterium targets is predicted theoretically and observed experimentally. A projectile-dependent effect is observed at small scattering angles. No target dependence was detected in the differential cross sections. A scaling relationship is determined which permits the prediction of differential cross sections for hydrogen-isotope projectiles.
