The mathematical model of pitch-angle diffusion in the magnetosphere which allows to compute theoret- ically density of phase space or pitch angle distribution of the charged particles is offered. On concrete examples of pitch angle distribution evolution during the 1-7 May 1998 geomagnetic storm within its last 68 hours potential opportunities of offered model of pitch-angle diffusion on the dayside of the Earths magnetosphere are shown.
