The range of electrons and positrons in detector materials has been calculated by the Wilson theory. The results obtained are compared with the values estimated from the continuous-slowing-down model. A correction factor which depends only on the energy is presented. It is concluded that the corrected Wilson theory yields good approximate values for ranges of electrons and positrons in the energy region above 70 keV.
