Light element (Mg, Al, Si, Ti) KαLn X-ray satellites have been measured by a crystal spectrometer. The X-rays were induced by p and He+ ion bombardment at several energies. Additional data have been collected from the literature covering a wide energy range and also other bombarding particles. In some cases more than two orders of magnitude of projectile energy has been covered. Analysing the impact energy dependence of the L-shell vacancy distributions reasonable agreement was found with the predictions of the geometrical model. On the basis of the above analysis a simple rule has been found to determine the effective binding energy of the L-shell electrons for the geometrical model of ionization.
