For crushing of the solids, the Rittengers's law states that the work required for crushing is proportional to
(a) The new surface created
(b) The change in volume due to crushing
(C)A fluid energy mill used for
(d) The size reduction ratio
(e) None of the above
The correct option is a) - the work required for crushing is proportional to the new surface created:
, where E is the energy per mass, KR is the Rittinger's constant, sn and si are new and initial surface areas, respectively.
