### How much GB does music take up?

If your i-tunes is set on the default setting of 128 kB / s, it
will hold about 25 albums (250- 300 songs ) per GB of space on the
ipod. If you manually set the resolution to it's max. of 320 kB/s ,
It will take up proportionally more space on the ipod but will
sound better (with less compression). If you have an ipod classic
with 120 or 160 GB of space, It's worth doing this, If you care
enough about sound quality.

### How many kilobytes make 1.5 GB?

based on 1000 KB = 1 MB and so on based on 1024 KB = 1 MB and so
on
4 Nibbles = 1 Bit 4 Nibbles = 1 Bit
8 Bits = 1 Byte 8 Bits = 1 Byte
1,000 Bytes = 1 KB 1024 Bytes = 1 KB
1,000 KB = 1 MB 1024 KB = 1 MB
1,000 MB = 1 GB 1024 MB = 1 GB
1,000 GB = 1 TB 1024 GB = 1 TB
~and the list goes on~
Don't confuse bits with bytes, ex. 8 Kilobits (Kb) = 1 Kilobyte
(KB)
so on with Megabits (Mb) Gigabits (Gb) ...
Answer:
1,500,000 KB based on 1000 KB = 1 MB and so on
1,572,864 KB based on 1024 KB = 1 MB & 1024 MB = 1 GB, and
so on
most people will use 1 MB being 1000 KB, but the reason for 1 MB
= 1024 KB was/is for the way computer memory is stored. that's why
you see flash drives that are usually
256 MB, 512 MB, 1024 MB (1 GB), 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB,
and rarely 32 GB.
that's where it starts, because you keep with the pattern
shown:
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096
...
I hope this wasn't too confusing for you, but maybe this will
answer future questions & provide a better understanding if you
can keep up.
P.S. for future conversions, If you'd like to convert based on
1000 KB = 1 MB, then all you have to do is move the decimal, and if
you'd like to convert based on 1024KB = 1 MB, then google
calculator will provide you with the correct answer. You can use
google calculator by typing into their searchbar something along
the lines of: KB in 1.5 GB, but you have to remember to keep the
letters capital, otherwise it will confuse it with
Kilobits/Gigabits.
Oh, and remember, almost all ISP's (Internet Service Providers
such as Charter & Qwest) us Megabits per second, not Megabytes
per second, so to find out how many Megabytes per second they are
advertising, just divide it by 8.

###### Asked in Technology

### Is there a cumulative amount of minutes that 1 gig would equate to?

No. Gigabytes are units of storage space. Minutes are a unit of
time. Time and storage space do not correlate.
If, however, you are referring to music on an MP3 player, there
are ways to calculate how many minutes of MP3 encoded music you can
store in one GB of space.
A sample MP3 that I have is encoded at 192 kbps. It runs 5
minutes and takes up 7074 KB. 1 GB = 1024 MB = 1048576 KB. 1048576
KB / 7074 KB ~= 148 times. So 148 5-min songs will take up one GB.
148 * 5 = 740, so your final answer is 740 minutes, or 12 hours, 20
minutes. But this varies widely, depending on the encoding quality,
the storage format and other things.

### Wow many KB are in one gig?

based on 1000 kB = 1 MB and so on based on 1024 kB = 1 MB and so
on
A bit is shorthand for binary digit. Note
bit is lower case, Byte is upper case!
4 bits = 1 nibble. 2 nibbles = 1 Byte. nibbles seldom met
with.
8 bits = 1 Byte
1,000 Bytes = 1 kB 1024 Bytes = 1 kB
1,000 KB = 1 MB 1024 KB = 1 MB
1,000 MB = 1 GB 1024 MB = 1 GB
1,000 GB = 1 TB 1024 GB = 1 TB
Due to history, kilo is lower case in expressions, whilst other
multipliers are upper case! But commonly upper case K is still
used.
