The measurement of the3He(e,e′pp)n reaction at 2.2 GeV over a wide kinematic range was discussed. It was found that the kinetic energy distribution for 'fast' nucleons peaks where two nucleons each had 20% or less and the third nucleon had most of the transferred energy. It was observed that the fast pp and pn pairs were back to back with little momentum along the three-momentum transfer. The measurement of distorted two-nucleon momentum distribution by striking one nucleon and detecting the spectator correlated pair was also elaborated.
