Calculate the total time required to read 35 sectors on a 2-sided floppy disk. Assume that each track has 8 sectors and the track-to-track step time is 8 milliseconds. The first sector to be read is sector 3 on track 10. Assume that the diskette is soft sectored and the controller has a 1-sector buffer. The diskette spins at 300 RPM and initially, the head is on track 10.

Is it out of syllabus?
this question does not specify the location of  35 sectors where to read from?

if we assume the time to read  a sector is 1/40 sec

then total time taken  assuming that 35 sectors are distributed somewhat evenly is 8*5 millisec +35/40sec
