Angular distributions of oxygen produced in the breakup of [Formula Presented] incident on a [Formula Presented] target have been measured at angles from [Formula Presented] to [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] to [Formula Presented] for beam energies of 98 and 120 MeV, respectively. The data are dominated by the proton stripping mechanism and are well reproduced by dynamical calculations. The measured breakup cross section is approximately a factor of 3 less than that of fusion at 98 MeV. The influence of breakup on fusion is discussed.
