  • We investigate the relationship between stellar and gas specific angular momentum j, stellar mass M-* and optical morphology for a sample of 488 galaxies extracted from the Sydney-AAO Multi-object Integral field Galaxy Survey. We find that j, measured within one effective radius, monotonically increases with M-* and that, for M-* > 10(9.5) M-aS (TM), the scatter in this relation strongly correlates with optical morphology (i.e. visual classification and S,rsic index). These findings confirm… CONTINUE READING
