### Abstract

Differential cross sections and a complete set of polarization observables have been measured in the quasielastic ^{2}H(p,n) reaction at a bombarding energy of 345 MeV and laboratory scattering angles of 16°, 22°, and 27°. The data are compared with plane-wave impulse approximation calculations employing an optimal factorization approximation. The agreement between the experimental and theoretical results validates these approximations in the present momentum- and energy-transfer regions. The experimental spin-longitudinal and spin-transverse response functions, R _{L} and R_{T}, respectively, are deduced from the data. The obtained R_{T} is consistent with that obtained from the quasielastic electron scattering. The theoretical calculations with the Reid soft core potential give good descriptions for R_{L} and R_{T}, whereas the latter is slightly underestimated around the quasielastic peak.
