This thesis presents the results of a measurement of polarization-transfer coefficients using the quasifree reaction on and at MeV for several different momentum transfers. These measurements are then used to extract separate longitudinal and transverse isovector spin responses for comparison to the results of various theoretical calculations. The data were obtained using the new INPOL ( Indiana Neutron Polarimeter) facility at IUCF ( Indiana University Cyclotron Facility) during the years of 1995 and 1996. The remainder of this chapter will present a description of the fundamental importance of these measurements, a review of previous experiments, and the motivation behind this new experiment.
