%X Optimum distance is defined as a distance from the air -shower core in which the density of a number of particles calculated by the lateral distribution function at that distance has the least uncertainty. Furthermore, with a good approximation, this distance is independent of the characteristics of primitive ray and it only depends on the geometric shape of array . In this paper, by simulating 1000 vertical EAS of protons with the energy 300 TeV , using the CORSIKA Monte Carlo code and trigger condition, the calculated distance for the array triggering ALBORZ-1 was found to be equal to 9±1 m. Also, it was found that this distance as well as the density of the number of calculated particles was independent of the lateral distribution function used in the calculations
