Conversion from One Unit to Another
- Conversion from One Unit to Another
- Worked Examples
- 1 nibble = 4 bits
- 8 bits = 1 Byte (∴ 2 nibbles = 1 Byte)
- 1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
- 1000 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
- 1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
- 1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
Kilobyte abbreviated as KB is a unit of measurement equivalent to one thousand bytes of computer memory or disk capacity. A byte is a value which is represented by 8 bits and a bit is a binary digit comprising of either 0 or 1. In computer data storage, you are allowed a total of 1024 bytes before you use up 1KB. In decimal systems, kilo stands for 1000 but the computer world is based on a binary system of twos instead of tens. So, a kilobyte is actually 1,024 bytes.
Megabyte, abbreviated as MB, is a unit of measurement equivalent to 1024 Kilobytes (1024 × 1024 bytes) meaning that you can use over 1 million bytes before you use up one MB.
