Ping time

Calculate theoretical ping time between Orlando and Shenzhen which is 14102 km distant. Ping time measures the round-trip time for small messages sent from the origin to a destination that is echoed back to the source. The name comes from active sonar terminology that sends a pulse of sound and listens for the echo to detect objects under water.

Assume that signal travel in optic cable - speed of light in a fiber optic cable (200,000km/s).

Result

t =  141.02 ms

Solution:

d=2 14102=28204 km v=200000 km/s  t1=d/v=28204/2000000.141 s t=1000 t1=1000 0.141=705150=141.02 msd=2 \cdot \ 14102=28204 \ \text{km} \ \\ v=200000 \ \text{km/s} \ \\ \ \\ t_{1}=d/v=28204/200000 \doteq 0.141 \ \text{s} \ \\ t=1000 \cdot \ t_{1}=1000 \cdot \ 0.141=\dfrac{ 7051 }{ 50 }=141.02 \ \text{ms}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
