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 network cable lists its speed as 10Mbps, that means 10 mega-bits per second.
Thanks for the feedback!

# 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

# 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

# If a particular computer has 8 byte addressability and a 4 bit address space how many bytes of memory does that computer have?

  Addressable memory = 2^n bytes where n = # of bits per address     2^4 = 16bytes of addressable memory

# How do you find out how many byte in 64-bit computer?

right click on my computer, click on properties, click on general tab. at the bottom you will see your memory in mega bytes or giga bytes.  or, right click on the start bar,

# How many bits are in a computer byte?

a byte consists of eight (8) bits.

# How many bits are there in 25 bytes?

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

72 bits is 9 bytes.

# How many bits are it byte?

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

# How many Bits in a T byte?

8.796 x 10^12 bits

# How computer process bits and bytes?

Bits and bytes are processed into binary code (0 & 1) and are sent to the processor to be processed (hence the name) into the computer's motherboard and is sent to wherever it
