```Hi,
I am totally dumb on this question. Please someone can help me to
know how to calculate this one.

Question:
-->>>A disk unit has 20 recording surfaces. It has a total of 14,000
cylinders. There is an average of 400 sectors per track and each
sector contains 512 bytes of data. Find the storage capacity of the
disk unit. If disk rotates at a speed of 7200 rpm then what is the
data transfer rate in bytes per second?

I am loking forward to you.

Thanks
Chnag

```I'll give it a try:

capacity: 20x14.000x400x512 bytes = 57.344.000.000 bytes.

speed: 20x400x512x7200/60 = 491.520.000 bytes/sec.

Bye,
Skybuck.

1 track =3D 400 sectors of 512 bytes =3D 204,800 bytes.

1 surface =3D 14,000 tracks =3D 2,867,200,000 bytes.

1 unit =3D 20 surfaces =3D 57,344,000,000 bytes.

7200 revs per minute =3D 120 revs per second.

120 trackfuls per second =3D 24,576,000 bytes per second.

is selected to be active during a transfer.  Skybuck's
data in parallel from all 20 surfaces.
