### Abstract

The Dirac equation is solved for mixed vector-scalar potentials. The limits on the scalar coupling constant are set by precision atomic experiments. We obtain the maximal size of the scalar coupling constant α′=2.5.10-8 per charge unit. Deviations from the Mott scattering are also determined.
