In this paper we want to compare the theoretical predictions of a law proposed by Feoli and Mancini, with the most recent experimental data about galaxies and Supermassive black holes. The physical principle behind this law is the transformation of the angular momentum of the interstellar material, which falls into the black hole, into the angular momentum of the radiation emitted in this process. Despite the simplicity of the model, this law shows an excellent agreement with the experimental data for early—type galaxies while a new approach is proposed for spirals.

Abstract

In this paper we want to compare the theoretical predictions of a law proposed by Feoli and Mancini, with the most recent experimental data about galaxies and Supermassive black holes. The physical principle behind this law is the transformation of the angular momentum of the interstellar material, which falls into the black hole, into the angular momentum of the radiation emitted in this process. Despite the simplicity of the model, this law shows an excellent agreement with the experimental data for early—type galaxies while a new approach is proposed for spirals.
