clock cycles for integer multiplication and addition in core 2 duo processor

Hello,
I have an Intel core 2 duo processor (E6400 2.13Ghz 2GB RAM)
How many clock cycles does an integer addition and an integer multiplication each take separately for my core 2 duo?

I suppose core 2 duo is a 14 stage pipeline.
thanks,
prads

Take a look at "Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Optimization Reference Manual":

There are latencies and throughputs of most instructions (Appendix C).
