We present single-particle momentum spectra for π-, K0, Λ̄0, and Λ0 particles produced in K+p collisions at 12.7 GeVc, and for π- mesons produced in π+p collisions at 7 GeVc. We examine the correlations between the transverse and longitudinal momentum components of these particles and compare them to those expected as a result of momentum conservation alone. We also investigate the transverse-momentum correlations in two-particle inclusive reactions and discuss the underlying kinematic constraints on these correlations.
