I have an assignment to calculate the number of sectors per track and the total number of cylinders based on the specification of WD Caviar SE200 disk drive.Assume that the buffer to disk rate = transfer rate.
What I did is by using the formula,
#of sector per track = #of bytes / track divides by # of bytes per sectors
and I got 1497.4 sectors/track.
Later I found out that actually the specification says that the sectors per track is actually 63. The difference are way too huge. Is there something wrong with my calculation?
