The fractal behaviour of medium-energy knocked-out protons in angular and azimuthal phase space for $\chem{{}^{28}Si}$- $\chem{AgBr}$ interactions at 14.5 A GeV has been studied using Takagi's method. The generalized dimensions ( Dq) are determined from this method. The data reflects the monofractal behaviour of medium-energy knocked-out protons.
