We study the electron impact excitation of the fine-structure levels of the ground state configuration 5p2 to the excited states of the configuration 5p6s in tin atom. These calculations have been carried out in the jj coupling scheme using the relativistic distorted-wave method. Results for differential cross section are reported at incident electron energies 20, 50, 80 and 100 eV while integrated cross sections are presented in the incident electron energy range of 5 to 100 eV.
