Extract

At Westerbork, we have mapped the distribution and motions of HI in about twenty gas-rich SO and SO/a galaxies, with resolutions of order 30 arcsec. Gas-rich SO's often have most of their HI in an outer ring, with diameters between 0.9 and 2.5 times the optical (D0). Assuming circular shape and motions for this ring, radius R, and a spherical distribution of matter, we derive the inclination and rotation speed of the ring, the amount of mass MT(R) interior to it and the corresponding ratio MT/LB 0 to blue luminosity.
