Abstract: An approximation $ a(x,t)$ is obtained for solutions $ u(x,t)$ of the Klein-Gordon equation. $ a(x,t)$ can be expressed in terms of the Fourier transforms of the Cauchy data and it is shown that $ \vert\vert a( \cdot ,t) - u( \cdot ,t)\vert{\vert _2} \to 0$ as $ t \to \infty $. This result is applied to show how energy distributes among various conical regions.
