A byte is a very small amount of computer data. A 1000 bytes or a kilobyte is about the size of a thumbnailed picture. Another answer: A byte is combination of 8 bits. A bit c…an be either 0 or 1. This combination of 8 bits of either 0 or 1 make up the lowest form of all letters, characters. and numbers store in a computer. BTW, in some cases the byte can be broken up in to two 4 bit parts called a "nibble".
A unit of memory on a computer, equaling 8 bits A byte is an 8 digit long binary number. Each digit in a byte is called a bit.
Many! the conversion is like this: 1gb = 1024mb 1mb = 1024kb 1kb = 1024b
I believe the question you are trying to ask is, "What are bytes" or "What is a byte." Simply put, a byte is a basic unit of measurement of information storage in compute…r science. The term "byte" comes from "bite," as in the smallest amount of data a computer could "bite" at once. The term byte was coined by Dr. Werner Buchholz in July 1956, during the early design phase for the IBM Stretch computer. Originally it was defined in instructions by a 4-bit byte-size field, allowing from one to sixteen bits. A fixed eight-bit byte size was later adopted and promulgated as a standard by the System/360.
A Byte is a collection of eight bits that can represent a single character.
One BYTE is currently defined as 8 BITs. (Binary digITs) 1 B = 8 b (Big "B" is for Bytes and little "b" is for bits.) Some data protocols use a different… number of bits to define a character (like the letter "A"), most systems today use 8 bits, some older systems used 5 bits or 7 bits. But a BYTE is currently defined as 8 bits, since historically the definition of a byte has changed throughout time. Also, one NIBBLE is half a byte, which is 4 bits. KB -- Kilobyte (official definition now means 1,000 bits per NIST and IEC): K = Kilo = 1,000 1 KB = 1,000 bytes 1,000 bytes = 1,000(8 bits per byte) = 8,000 bits KiB -- Kibibyte (new term to avoid confusion with a Kilobyte): 2^10 = 1,024 1 KiB = 1,024 bytes 1,024 bytes = 1,024(8 bits per byte) = 8,192 bits So, basically, there's still a lot of confusion between IT professionals and manufacturers of data storage devices as not many have adopted the newer Kibibyte definitions. Therefore, you must determine the context and/or do your own math to validate which meaning is being used.

1, of course. There are 8 bits in 1 byte. 1000 bytes in a kilobyte. 1000 kilobytes in a megabyte and so on....
8 bits or 2 nibbles. =D. A bit is a 1 or 0 in binary and is stored on your hard drive. Every bit of every byte of every megabyte of every gigabyte are 1s and 0s.
It depends on if you're using 1000 (103)or 1024 (210) as a multiplier, but either 1/1000 or 1/1024. A terabyte is larger than a gigabyte.
26938034880512 bytes (24.5*1024*1024*1024). 215504279044096 bits(8bits=1byte)
1024 kilo byte
1kb =1,024 bytes 1Byte= bits So that Mean 1 Byte is less Then 1 Kilobyte
That depends. Given that the average hard drive is 500 GB, you have approximately 536,870,912,000 bytes of storage on your computer. This diesn't include the amount of space t…aken by your OS or other necessary program files. 1024 bytes equals 1 KB 1024 KB equals 1 MB 1024 MB equals 1 GB 1024 GB equals 1 TB
