We investigated the magnitude factor of the Kalbach phenomenology in order to estimate double differential cross-sections (DDXs) of (p, 3He), (p, 4He), (p, 6Li) and (p, 7Li) reactions at intermediate energies that is several hundreds of MeV. Firstly, we obtained DDXs on target nuclei, Be, C and Al by using a 392-MeV proton beam. Secondly, the magnitude factor has been formulated and parameterized by using the present data and Ag data measured elsewhere. Although the slope parameters of the magnitude factor were found to be independent of targets, absolute values are dependent. The magnitude factor shows a consistency between heavy targets, Al and Ag. In contrast, considerable different tendencies are seen for the light targets. As a result, it has been remarked that the present parameterization is of highly useful in yield estimation for experimental planning of light charged particle production reactions. It allows us to conduct such experiments with the higher efficiency.
