produces a spherical particle
of radius 0.078 nm. What is its
sphericity?

Φ s= 1
a

2. Upon crushing, graphite forms a regular


pentagonal pyramid with a height of 0.5 mm.
The base’s side, a, is 0.3 mm. What is the
sphericity, Φs of this graphite particle?

Φs= 0.75
3. Compute the sphericity of the
valine tripeptide, TVP after
interacting with circular DNA that
leads to the formation of perfect
torus-shaped particles.

Φs= 0.35
4. The smallest garnet crystals
are regular dodecahedron
shaped. Calculate it’s sphericity if
the length of an edge is 0.6
microns.

Φs= 0.91
5. Cadmium has a hexagonal right
prisms crystal lattice structure
whose area of the base is 0.9 nm2
and height of 0.7 nm. What is its
sphericity?

Φs= 0.83
6-10. Bauxite ore is fed to a jaw crusher with the following
analysis. The succeeding process needs the materials bigger
than 6 mesh and smaller than the 20 mesh. The middle fraction
is considered as reject and is reprocessed. The lab analysis of
the feed and all the output is given below.
MESH FEED TOP MIDDLE BOTTOM
NUMBER FRACTION FRACTION FRACTION

6. How many percent of the
feed or subsequent
products are rejects?
% Reject in Feed: 46
% Reject in Top Frac.: 6
% Reject in Bottom Frac.: 26
7. If the feed is 1MT what is
the mass of the middle
fraction?
MID: 512.8 kg

*MT = metric ton
