We compare the MOG and MOND predictions of the Tully-Fisher relationship to observations using gas-rich galaxies for which the baryonic mass can be estimated accurately. We find that both theories are in good agreement with the data. Future observations of large, gas-rich galaxies may offer a means to distinguish between these two theories.

We model the velocity dispersion of the ultra-diffuse galaxy NGC 1052-DF2 using Newtonian gravity and modified gravity (MOG). The velocity dispersion predicted by MOG is higher than the Newtonian
THE BARYONIC TULLY-FISHER RELATION OF GAS-RICH GALAXIES AS A TEST OF ΛCDM AND MOND
The baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is an empirical relation between baryonic mass and rotation velocity in disk galaxies. It provides tests of galaxy formation models in ΛCDM and of
