For the study of three nucleon force (3NF) effects in the intermediate energy region, the differential cross sections and the vector analyzing power Ay were measured for the 2H(p, n) inclusive breakup reaction at 170 MeV. The polarized proton beam of 170 MeV was injected to the deuterated polyethylene (CD2) target and the energy of scattered neutrons were deduce by TOF method. The data was compared with the results of the Faddeev calculations with and without 3NFs. Concerning about the differential cross sections, we can see large discrepancies between the data and the calculations in the region where the energies of scattered neutrons are low, which are similar to the results of the 2H(p, p) inclusive breakup reaction at 250 MeV.
