### Analysis of ball mill grinding operation using mill power

Kim has presented batch grinding data for 10/14 mesh size fraction of limestone ground in a 25.4 cm ball mill (mill speed, N: 0.5–0.8 (50–80% critical); ball size, d: 25.4 cm; ball load, J: 0.5 (corresponding to 50% filling of mill volume by static ball charge; particle load, U: 1.0 (corresponding to filling of interstitial volume of static ball charge).
