Abstract
The $KN \Lambda$ and $KN \Sigma$ coupling constants have been calculated in the framework of the Chiral Bag Model(CBM). We find $-3.88 \leq g_{_{KN \Lambda}} \leq -3.67 $ and $1.15 \leq g_{_{KN \Sigma}} \leq 1.24$ by taking into account pseudoscalar mesons $(\pi, K)$ and vector mesons $(\rho, \omega, K^{\ast}) $field effects. Particularly, it is shown that vector mesons make significant contributions to the coupling constants $g_{_{KN \Lambda}}$ and $g_{_{KN \Sigma}}$. Our values are existing within the experimental limits compared to the phenomenological values extracted from the kaon photoproduction and kaon-nucleon scattering experiments. Also, form factors are suggested for the $\pi NN$, $\pi N \Delta$,$KN \Lambda$ and $KN \Sigma$ couplings.
