How can you calculate the capacity of a Winchester disk given its density and speed? A disk has 10 recording surfaces. Each surface has 2000 tracks, each track has 512 sectors and each sector can store 1MB of data. Calculate the capacity of this disk.

 To calculate the capacity of the Winchester disk, you can follow these steps:

1. Calculate the capacity of one surface:


   Capacity per surface = Number of tracks × Number of sectors per track × Size of each sector


   Capacity per surface = 2000 tracks × 512 sectors/track × 1 MB/sector


   Capacity per surface = 1,024,000 MB = 1,024 GB

2. Calculate the total capacity of all surfaces:

   Total surface capacity = Capacity per surface × Number of recording surfaces


   Total surface capacity = 1,024 GB × 10 surfaces


   Total surface capacity = 10,240 GB or 10.24 TB

So, the capacity of the Winchester disk is 10.24 terabytes.
