k should be 1, so that the measure won't wait for the hardware
in the secondcase, I proposed that there will be some callback funstion in measure that after time t will get signal and release CPU by some kind of yield. One of them told me that callback means busy wait, I explained her that it is wrong and did it in a bad manner, now I am sorry on that... Finally, they said they wanted to hear about different priorities to the threads, I said that in some advanced course, we were taught never to design with priorities manipulations...
It was also too stupied from my side...
