Unit 2 Assignment 1: Transfer Time

File Size | Transfer Rate | Transfer Time |

100 MB | 56 Kbps | 15 seconds |

100 MB | 4 Mbps | .2 seconds |

2 GB | 56 Kbps | 4 minutes 46 seconds |

2 GB | 4 Mbps | 4 seconds |

(100 MB x 1,000 x 8) / (56 Kbps x 1000) = 15 seconds

(100 MB x 1,000 x 8) / (4 Mbps x 1,000 x 1,000) = .2 seconds

4 Mbps | 10 minutes | 300 MB |

56 Kbps | 4 hours | 100.8 MB |

4 Mbps | 2 hours | 3.6 GB |

(30 min. x 60 sec.) x (56 Kbps x 1000) = 100,800,000 b

(100,800,000 b / 8) / 1000 = 12,600 KB = 12.6 MB

(10 min. x 60 sec.) x (4 Mbps x 1000 x 1,000) = 2,400,000,000 b

(2,400,000,000 b / 8) / 1000 = 300,000 KB = 300 MB

(4 hrs. x 60 min. x 60 sec.) x (56 Kbps x 1000) = 806,400,000 b

(806,400,000 b / 8) / 1000 = 100,800 KB = 100.8 MB

(2 hrs. x 60 min. x 60 sec.) x (4 Mbps x 1000 x 1,000) = 28,800,000,000 b

(28,800,000,000 b / 8) / 1000 = 3,600,000 KB = 3,600 MB = 3.6 GB
