Here we present a comparative study of various schemes commonly used for the determination of the safe minimum value of the impact parameter, which decides the maximum value of forward laboratory scattering angle, in intermediate-energy Coulomb excitation experiments. We have found that these are special cases of the recently proposed parameterization scheme in Kumar Rajiv et al., Phys. Rev. C, 81 (2010) 037602. The scheme may be used to demarcate the absorption-free as well as no-flux loss zone for intermediate-energy Coulomb excitation experiments.
