Question #226953

Find the critical speed of the ball mill in RPM?

(a) 20.1

(b) 30.7 (c) 49.6 (J) 67.8. (e) None

Expert's answer

N_{c }= 1/2π[√g/(R-r)]--------(1)

Where N_{c} is the critical speed of the ball mill in revolution per second

g= acceleration due to gravity= 9.8 m/s^{2}

Consider

R= Radius of ball mill in m =0.9m

r= radius of ball in m=0.03 m

Put all values in above equation

N_{c }= 1/2π[√g/(R-r)]

N_{c}=1/2×3.14[√9.81/(0.9-0.03)]

N_{c}= 1/6.28[√9.81/0.87]

=1/6.28[√11.27]

= 0.534rps

= 0.534×60rpm

N_{c}=32.04 rpm

Answer is none of the above
