NOTE: dont want the answer here,l just for someone to point me in the right direction, as this is part of an assignment.

I have a disk drive spec with figures for rotational speed, seek time, secters per track,bytes per sector and sectors per cluster. i need to calculate the read time for an 8MB file when the storage is contagious and fragmented. I ahve searched everywhere for this and cant find anything, as i assume there is some sort of formula, method i need to use.

Again, i would just like someone to point me in the right direction.

Thanks for any help.
