Consider a disk pack with a seek time of 4 milliseconds and rotational speed of 10000 rotations per minute (RPM). It has 600 sectors per track and each sector can store 512 bytes of data. Consider a file stored in the disk. The file contains 2000 sectors. Assume that every sector access necessitates a seek, and the average rotational latency for accessing each sector is half of the time for one complete rotation. The total time (in milliseconds) needed to read the entire file is ____________.

Consider a typical disk that rotates at $$15000$$ rotations per minute $$(RPM)$$ and has a transfer rate of $$50 \times {10^6}\,\,\,bytes/\sec .$$ If the average seek time of the disk is twice the average rotational delay and the controller’s transfer time is $$10$$ times the disk transfer time, the average time (in milliseconds) to read or write a $$512$$-byte sector of the disk is ______________________.
