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

# 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 are the computer measurements for bits bytes etc.?

Bit= a single 0 or 1, Byte= 8 bits (any combination of 8 0's or 1's) Kilobyte (KB)= 1024 bytes Megabytes (MB)= 1024 KB Gigabyte (GB)= 1024 MB Terabyte (TB)= 1024 GB … Petabyte (PB)= 1024 TB Exabyte (EB)= 1024 PB.

# How many bits in a mega byte?

1 Mega Byte = 8,000,000 bits

# 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\n.
\n2^4 = 16bytes of addressable memory

# How many bytes are in 1 bit?

Bit is the smallest component of data and byte is larger then bit so: 1 byte = 8 bits = 2 3 bits 1 Kilobyte = 1024 bytes = 2 10 bits 1 Megabyte = 1024 kilobytes = 2 2…0 bits 1 Gegabyte = 1024 megabytes = 2 30 bits

# 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,… left click on task manager, click on the performance tab and where it says physical memory there will be a total. this will be your total ram in bytes.
