Differential cross sections and analyzing powers have been measured for inelastic proton excitation of states in C12 up to an excitation energy of 20 MeV. Angular distributions are reported for incoming proton energies of 200, 318, 398, 597, 698, and 800 MeV, typically over the momentum transfer range from 0.5 to 2 fm-1; some of these data have been published previously. Reaction calculations in the distorted-wave impulse approximation have been carried out for most of the data. Agreement between theory and experiment for both the magnitudes and shapes of the cross-section data is generally good; the analyzing-power distributions are less well described.
