Disk, seek time, latency, sector, request

Single-platter disk rotation speed: 7200 rpm number of tracks on one side of platter: 30,000 number of sectors per track: 600 seek time: 1 ms for every 100 tracks traversed Disk receives a request to access a random sector on a random track. assume the head starts at track 0.

a. What is the average seek time?
b. ave. rotational latency?
c. transfer time for a sector?
d. total ave. time to satisfy a request?
