The elastic charge form factors of the charged $\pi$ and $K$ mesons are calculated in modified impulse approximation using instant form of relativistic Hamiltonian dynamics. Our approach gives pion and kaon electromagnetic form factors in the large range of momentum transfer. The results are in good agreement with the available data. Relativistic effects are large at all values of momentum transfers. The pion and kaon form factors at large $Q^2$ depend strongly on the choice of model. The… CONTINUE READING
