Results from π± elastic and inelastic scattering from C12 and Ca40 are reported. The data were all taken at an incident momentum of 800 MeV/c over an angular range from 4°to 38°. The elastic data are compared to first-order optical model calculations in momentum space; qualitative agreement is obtained. The inelastic data (from C12 only) are compared to distorted-wave Born approximation calculations, and reasonable agreement is found if realistic inelastic transition densities are used.
