Q. When calculating channel efficiency, they have not mentioned propagation delay (i.e. the delay it takes for last bit to cross the link in successful transmission)

https://gateoverflow.in/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=300869075225723175

https://gateoverflow.in/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=3762516041534646972

Q. But here they have mentioned propagation delay (i.e. the delay it takes for last bit to cross the link in successful transmission)

[[ second part ethernet efficiency ]]

https://gateoverflow.in/?qa=blob&qa_blobid=415976416681037505

Please tell should I take the propagation delay of the last bit in calculating efficiency and throughput ?

@vijaycs sir Please help

Best answer
Propagation delay doesnt depend upon the size of the packet.It depends upon the speed of the signal in the channel.
 Rather, I think its a channel property. Its like the difference between 8 lane highways and 2 lane highways.

I say to Lambhorghini that drive on 2 lane highway. It will go like Maruti Alto. But if its 8 lane road, it will be like superfast bullet train.

Here the car was same, channels were different.

Similarly, packet is always the same but the time required to cross a channel depends upon the channel I think.

SO I should take propagation time

CSMA/CD $Throughput = \frac{FrameSize}{TransmissionPeriod+CollitionPeriod+PropagationPeriod}$

Propagation time is

length of channel/ speed of signal in channel.
