true hard drive capacity

hi,

i have a "120" gig hd or so the box says. when i look in windows its capacity size, it says 111 gig. that's a 7.5% loss.

i know this is common and all drives go through this. however is it safe to say that all drives have a 7.5% percent loss?

is there an equation to figure this out? what's the average percentage of loss?
