We studied the [Formula presented] reaction at beam momenta of 5.9, 8.0, and [Formula presented]. For quasielastic ([Formula presented]) events [Formula presented], the momentum of the knocked-out proton before the reaction, was compared (event by event) with [Formula presented], the coincident neutron momentum. For [Formula presented] (the Fermi momentum) a strong back-to-back directional correlation between [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] was observed, indicative of short-range [Formula presented] correlations. From [Formula presented] and [Formula presented] we constructed the distributions of c.m. and relative motion in the longitudinal direction for correlated pairs. We also determined that [Formula presented] of events with [Formula presented] had directionally correlated neutrons with [Formula presented].
