In a token ring network the transmission speed is 10$^7$ bps and the propagation speed is 200 meters/$\mu$s. The 1-bit delay in this network is equivalent to:

  1. 500 meters of cable.

  2. 200 meters of cable.

  3. 20 meters of cable.

  4. 50 meters of cable.

Best answer

As, token ring network

  So,        transmission delay = length / bandwidth

                  transmission delay = 1/10^7 = 0.1micro sec.

   as,  propagation speed =200m/micro sec.

         In , 1micro sec.  it covers 200m

  than in 0.1micro sec. it is 20metres.(C) answer

Can it be solve using, d<= L/2*V/B and by playing with units?

i have the same doubt as @smartmeet. i tried using formula but couldn't approach. Anyone can help?

@smartmeet & @Regina Phalange

It works on CSMA/CD and note that there we deal only with one sender and one receiver at distant location (so wait  2Tp  for both collision S-R & R-S direction)

but in ring each station(sender/receiver) is connected with another adjacent station. So we don't require that much time to wait for.

L/B = d/v

So it will work but remove 2 from your from your TRICK

for another example working
