Electron scattering cross sections for Zr90 have been measured with a resolution of less than 40 keV in a momentum transfer range between 0.4<q<3.1 fm-1 both at forward angles and at 160°, which allows a separation of longitudinal and transverse form factors. The analysis of the positive-parity states (including previous data for some of the states) results in transition densities. Most densities are compared to various model calculations. The density of the 8+ level is used to determine the radius of the g92 proton orbit as R (g92)=5.0350.045 fm.
