Abstract
We calculate the form factors F0 and F1 of $B\rightarrow\pi$ and V, A0, A1 and A2 of $B\rightarrow\rho$ transition matrix elements by using the factorization formalism of perturbative QCD in the region $0\le q^2 \le M_B^2/2$. In the limit of $m_\pi /M_B=0$, $m_\rho /M_B=0$, Mb/MB=1 and $(1-x)\ll 1$, the results show that F0 and A1 are of monopole type, V, A0 and A2 of dipole type, and F1 of a combination of monopole and dipole types with dipole type dominating.
