Abstract

We discuss the v sin i distributions of main sequence B stars in galactic clusters in relation to stellar luminosity and to cluster metallicity. We show that evolutionary effects and/or dependence of initial v sin i distribution on stellar mass are important, so that a much larger sample and a wider metallicity range are required to detect any possible metallicity effect beyond doubt.
