Question

Table 1 shows the specific rate of breakage Sj and the values of the breakage distribution function b(i,j) of a mineral ore in a ball mill. Table 2 shows the size distribution of the feed.

Table 1 Specific rate of breakage Sj and the values of the breakage distribution function b(i,j) of a mineral ore in a ball mill based on 5 revolution of the mill.

(a) Which interval has the smallest absolute change in mass fraction after 1 min if the mill was operated at 5 rpm? Show your calculations.

(b) Given that the energy requirement for this ball milling process is 25 kJ·kg-1. In 100 words or less, describe which model (or models) you would use to estimate the energy required to crush the same feed material to a different size distribution. Justify your answers.
