Differential cross sections have been measured for the elastic and inelastic scattering of 135 MeV protons from 12C. The data from the transitions to 9 selected states up to 18.3 MeV in excitation have been analysed using a distorted wave approximation with various microscopic model nuclear structure transition densities and free and density-dependent two-nucleon t-matrices. Clear signatures of the density dependence of the t-matrix are defined and the utility of selected transitions to test different attributes of that t-matrix when good nuclear structure models are used is established. © 1983.
