Inverse biquadrate force might be proved with inverse square attenuation of light intensity. Galaxy rotation curve for the Milky Way. Vertical axis is speed of rotation about the galactic center. Horizontal axis is distance from the galactic center. The sun is marked with a yellow ball. The observed curve of speed of rotation is blue. The predicted curve based upon stellar mass and gas in the Milky Way is red. Scatter in observations roughly indicated by gray bars. The difference is due to dark matter or perhaps a modification of the law of gravity.

## Attenuation by the space

Unit time areal density of momentum is normally dependent on Inverse square of distance for perfect vacuum without any absorption, scattering and reflection by dark matter. Optical attenuation by Solid is described by the factor of exp(-kr). Although 1/rr factor is abnormal for opotics. density variation of dark matter from the astronomic object isn't negligible and is proportianl to -ln(rr)/r which is primitive.

Function -2lnr/r has a minimum about -0.74 at r=2.73 and asymtotically approaches to 0.

Density function inbetween the astronomical objects may be rewritten. where 0.74   and r is also normalized value of distance r=d/ To find & ; out is very necessary to proceed. Temperature and mass density against altitude from the NRLMSISE-00 standard atmosphere model shows that local minimum is between 100km and 160km.

## Rigorous approach

Above equation is not rigorous. where is extinction coefficients.

Inverse square attenuation is given by the following equations.  Which is assumed to be propotional to the density of the space.

## Rotation curves as evidence of a dark matter halo

The presence of dark matter in the halo is demonstrated by its gravitational effect on a spiral galaxy's rotation curve. Without large amounts of mass in the extended halo, the rotational velocity of the galaxy should decrease at large distance from the galactic core. However, observations of spiral galaxies, particularly radio observations of line emission from neutral atomic hydrogen (known, in astronomical parlance, as HI), show that the rotation curve of most spiral galaxies remains flat far beyond the visible matter. The absence of any visible matter to account for these observations implies the presence of unobserved (i.e. dark) matter. Asserting that this dark matter does not exist would mean that the accepted theory of gravitation (General Relativity) is wrong, and while that could be possible, most scientists would require extensive amounts of compelling evidence before considering it. is often used to model the distribution of mass in dark matter halos. Theoretical dark matter halos produced in computer simulations are best described by the Einasto profile: ## See also
