The study of the K+ total cross sections on a wide range of nuclei has revealed important modifications of the free-space K+-nucleon interaction when the nucleon is embedded in a nucleus. Data indicating such an effect were first obtained in a comparison of the total cross sections on carbon and deuterium. In this letter we report new measurements on 6Li, silicon, and calcium, and demonstrate that the previously reported modifications occur quite generally.
