Q: Suppose an application generates chunks of 40 bytes of data every 20 msec, and each chunk gets encapsulated in a TCP segment and then an IP datagram. What percentage of each datagram will be overhead, and what percentage will be application data?

Please someone who knows explain also.

Thanks in adv. - Madhav.

what is the answer? is it 50%?
i think it will be 50% useful data=20 byte and header =20byte (at transport layer)

at network layer again there will be 20 byte of header so useful data=20 byte but useless data i.e overhead=40 byte

%=20/40*100=50% correct me if i am wrong.

if in question if it is asking about efficiency then it will be 33.33%
