# How many bits in byte?

historically, the byte was whatever the computer said it was. There have been computers that use bytes anywhere from 5 to 36 bits long. Today however, almost all computers use… 8 bit bytes. When there is absolutely no room for misunderstanding, the term octet is used instead, which always means 8 bits.

# What is a bit and how many bits are in a byte?

A bit is typically the smallest unit of memory in an electronic device. As it is based on a binary system, it can contain only one of two possible values: 1 or 0, which genera…lly relate to that electronic memory element being set On or Off, respectively. A byte consists of 8 bits and is typically used to represent a single logical character. As each of the 8 bits can contain either of two binary values (1 or 0) the total number of combinations in any byte is therefore 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2 = 2**8 = 256. The literal character for any particular byte value can vary depending on the Code being used by the computer. For example, a byte with a current value of 90 is generally "Z" in ASCII but is "!" in EBCDIC. But even within the general structure of ASCII there can be special character sets employed wherein some or all of the values are agreed to represent other characters used in foreign languages or in special applications. .
1 bit (b) = 1 binary value (0 or 1) .
1 byte (B) = 8 bits = one logical character .
1 kilobyte (KB) = 1024B .
1 megabyte (MB) = 1024KB .
1 gigabyte (GB) = 1024MB .
1 terabyte (TB) = 1024GB

# How many bits are in a byte of binary data?

One BYTE is always 8 BITs. (Binary digITs) Some data protocols use a different number of bits to define a character, most systems today use 8 bits, some older systems used 5… bits or 7 bits. But a BYTE is always 8 bits regardless. (a NIBBLE is half a byte - 4 bits)

# If 1000 bytes are in a kilobyte How many bits are in a byte?

There are actually 1024 bytes in 1 kilobyte; but there are only 8 bits in 1 byte.

# How many bits are in a byte in a computer?

There are 8 bits in a byte. People use a lowercase 'b' to mean "bits" and an uppercase "B" to mean bytes. So if a hard drive has 500GB, that's giga- bytes . But if a networ…k cable lists its speed as 10Mbps, that means 10 mega- bits per second.

# How many bits are in 512 bytes?

4096 bits

# How many bits are there in 25 bytes?

1 byte has 8 bits. so 25 bytes have 200 bits.

# How many bits in 18 bytes?

18 bytes is 144 bits.

# How many bits in 1Mega bytes?

1 byte = 8 bits 1 Kilo byte = 1024 bytes = 8192 bits 1 Mega byte = 1024 Kilo Bytes = 1048576 bytes = 8388608 bits

# How many bytes are in 72 bits?

# How many bit are there in sixteen byte?

1 byte = 8 bits By that logic 16 bytes = 8 x 16 bits So 16 bytes contain 128 bits Do note that bits always typically come in powers of two. 2,4,8,16,32,64,128, and… so on.
