#### Estimation of the Specific Energy Requirement for Size Reduction of ...

where (y_{p}) is the 80% passing size of the mill product, (y_{f}) is the 80% passing size of the mill feed, C is a millmaterial constant, and α is the exponent of particle size (its significance discussed in detail later). It has been shown [] that the value of the exponent α varies strongly with the material type, generally in the range of 02.
