  1. To understand latency versus bandwidth with a real-world example,
  2. let's say my research group and I were going to drive from California to Virginia to visit Dave.
  3. This is 4,500 kilometers.
  4. Now we could either take a sports car,
  5. which holds 2 of us, and speed across the country at 200 kilometers an hour.
  6. Or we could take a bus that holds 40 of us
  7. but only travels at 50 kilometers per hour.
  8. What is the latency of each, measured in hours,
  9. and the throughput measured in people transported per hour?
