On an audio compact disc (CD), digital bits of information are encoded sequentially along a spiral path. Each bit occupies about 0.28 um. A CD player's readout laser scans along the spiral's sequence of bits at a constant speed of about 1.2 m/s as the CD spins.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Determine the number N of digital bits that a CD player reads every second.

How should I start on this problem. Thank you !
