Abstract: We investigate the origin of a unified scaling relation in spiral galaxies using the N-body/SPH method (Katz 1992; Steinmetz & Müller 1994), which includes cooling, star formation and stellar feedback. We find that the initial difference of mass and angular momentum could produce the slope and scatter of the unified scaling relation.
