The results of measuring the yields of neutral and charged pions in the reaction (γ, ρp) on Li, C, and Al nuclei are presented as functions of the proton energy and azimuth angle of pion emission. The experiment was performed in the second resonance region of the photon energy. The measurements are analyzed within the model of single and double quasi-free pion photoproduction. The energy dependences of the mean free path of the proton and neutral and charged pions are obtained based on the dependence of the reaction yield on the atomic number of the target nucleus.
