#### Ball Mill Operating Speed MSubbu Academy

The critical speed of ball mill is given by, (displaystyle n_c = frac {1} {2pi}sqrt {frac {g} {Rr}} ) where R = radius of ball mill; r = radius of ball. For R = 1000 mm and r = 50 mm, = rpm But the mill is operated at a speed of 15 rpm. Therefore, the mill is operated at 100 x 15/ = % of critical speed.
