The Be star sample of Steele et al. (1998) has a distribution of v sin i’s that is luminosity dependant, with giants having lower projected rotational velocities than dwarfs. We show that this effect can be understood simply in terms of angular momentum conservation during the evolution from dwarf to giant. Any decretion disk or other angular momentum… CONTINUE READING
