The longitudinal and transverse form-factor spectra for electroexcitation of the C12 giant resonance were determined separately. Results are presented for an excitation energy range of from 15 to 30 MeV and for a momentum-transfer range of 0.84-1.56 F-1. We have found levels with the following excitation energies (MeV), spins, and parities: 18.6 (3-), 19.6 (4-), 20.0 (2+), 20.6 (3+), 21.6 (3-), 22.0 (1-), 22.7 (1-), and 23.8 (1-). We have also found new evidence of the spin-isospin mode for the 22.7-MeV (1-) excitation.
