Hello M & R folk, I hope there are a few nucleic acid types out there...

Instead of looking thru various books to get this info, I thought I could
get an answer faster here:  If one considers RNA as a helical form, how
many bases between each helical turn?  It should be different from DNA,
right?  Approximately 10 to 11?  Can anyone give an exact number?  I
appreciate any responses that you send.
Thanks in advance,
