Abstract: We present a photometric study of the overcontact binary AH Cnc. The CCD observations were done with the Russian-Turkish 1.5 m telescope and the light-curve was solved with the Wilson-Devinney code. The physical parameters of the components have been deduced as M1 = 1.22 MSolar , M2 = 0.20 MSolar , R1 = 1.37 RSolar , R2 = 0.66 RSolar , L1 = 2.65 LSolar and L2 = 0.63 LSolar from the obtained orbital parameters and the distance modules of M 67. AH Cnc has been compared with similar systems in the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
