A new method of obtaining the charge spectrum of light hyperfragments from their residual range distribution is described. This method has been used to determine the ratio (Q) of non-mesic to π-mesic decay of light hyperfragments. The values of Q for hyperfragments of different charges are found to be in good agreement with theoretical calculations of Dalitz.
