given the following characteristics of magnetic tape and using linear recording dens 5151670

Given the following characteristics of magnetic tape, and using linear recording:

– Density=2000 bpi

– Speed= 1500 inches/second

– Size=3000 feet

– Number of records to be stored: 200,000 records

– Size of each records=100 bytes

– Block size=10 records

– IBG=.5 inches

Calculate the following:

1- Number of blocks needed

2- Size of the block in bytes

3- Time required to read one block

4- Time required to read all blocks

5- Amount of tape used for data only in inches

6- Total amount of tape used (data + IBG) in inches
