We present a detailed study of the stellar mass vs. specific angular momentum (AM) relation (Fall relation) for a representative sample of 564 nearby galaxies in the eXtended GALEXArecibo SDSS Survey (xGASS). We focus on the dependence of the Fall relation’s slope on galaxy type and the galaxy properties regulating its scatter. Stellar specific AM is determined by combining single-dish Hi velocity widths and stellar mass profiles for all Hi detections in the xGASS sample. At fixed morphology…
