Abstract
The theory of an induced energy polarized vacuum, as previously presented by the author (Penner. Can. J. Phys. 90, 315 (2012)), is used to generate a theoretical rotational curve for the Galaxy. The theoretical curve generated is found to be in good agreement with Sofue's (Publ. Astron. Soc. Jpn. 64, (2012)) compilation of observations. For the baryonic mass distribution and baryonic Tully–Fisher relationship that is used, the theoretical orbital velocity at the Sun's location is found to be (235 ± 15) km s−1. The galactic rotational velocity is then found to slowly fall from this value as it asymptotically approaches the value of (192 ± 15) km s−1.
