Angular correlations between particles and evaporation residues have been measured to study the equilibrium versus nonequilibrium effects on the fusion process. Measurements with -particle detectors were carried out to extreme forward angles (4°) to maximize the sensitivity to nonequilibrium components. The results are consistent with complete fusion and equilibrium decay, in contrast with recent systematics that predict large amounts of incomplete fusion at this energy.
