Inelastic scattering of pions with energy near the (3,3) resonance is calculated with a distorted-wave impulse approximation formulated in momentum space. Results for all -shell targets are given and compared to existing data. Strong transitions are dominated by quadrupole amplitudes, and enhancement factors consistent with observed values are needed to attain agreement with observed cross sections in these cases. The sensitivity of pion scattering to isospin effects is noted. This distorted-wave impulse approximation approach appears to offer a reasonable interpretation of inelastic pion scattering.
