During this impact process, the rate of ball wear, which is the rate of mass lost by the ball, is proportional to the ball mass; the cube of the ball diameter (Davis, 1919).

The majority of grinding balls are forged carbon or alloy steels. Generally, they are spherical, but other shapes have been used. The choice of the top (or recharge) ball size can be made using empirical equations developed by Bond (1958) or Azzaroni (1984) or by using special batch-grinding tests interpreted in the content of population balance models (Lo and Herbst 1986).
