In this paper we have studied the possible proton collisions in cosmic ray sources. On the basis of our calculations of background temperature, the operational domains of various proton collisions are suggested. The energy rate loss through the photo-neutrino processes on protons is computed and we have discussed the energy distribution of the secondary particles in various collisions.
