Abstract
A direct measurement of the total decay width of the W boson ΓW is presented using 350  pb-1 of data from pp̅ collisions at √s=1.96   TeV collected with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The width is determined by normalizing predicted signal and background distributions to 230 185 W candidates decaying to eν and μν in the transverse-mass region 50
