Angular distributions of fluorine and oxygen produced from 170MeV 17F incident on 208Pb were measured. The elastic scattering data are in good agreement with optical model calculations using a double-folding potential and parameters similar to those obtained from 16O+208Pb. A large yield of oxygen was observed near θlab=36°. It is reproduced fairly well by a calculation of the (17F,16O) breakup, which is dominated by one-proton stripping reactions. The discrepancy between our previous coincidence measurement and theoretical predictions was resolved by including core absorption in the present calculation.
