Protons scattered inelastically from C12 were detected at laboratory angles between 6°and 13°in coincidence with rays from deexcitation of the 1+ NT=1 state in the recoil nucleus. Coincident cross sections for rays emitted normal to the reaction plane and angular correlations for rays emitted in the proton scattering plane at angles between 90°and 270°are presented and compared with predictions from both nonrelativistic and relativistic models of proton-nucleus scattering calculated in the impulse approximation. These data display a clear preference for the relativistic-model prediction.
