# What are bytes?

A byte is a very small amount of computer data. A 1000 bytes or a kilobyte is about the size of a thumbnailed picture.

A byte is combination of 8 bits. A bit can 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".

There are a billion (109) terabytes in a zettabyte. One terabyte is 1012 bytes and one zettabyte is 1021 bytes. SI prefixes and their values: 103 bytes = 1 kilobyte 106 bytes = 1 megabyte 109 bytes = 1 gigabyte 1012 bytes = 1 terabyte 1015 bytes = 1 petabyte 1018 bytes = 1 exabyte 1021 bytes = 1 zettabyte 1024 bytes = 1 yottabyte 125000 bytes Wrong. 1MB has 1048576 bytes.  There are 1024 bytes in a Kilobyte and 1073741824 bytes in a Gigabyte No, megabytes are larger than bytes. a megabyte is 1,000,000 bytes by common definition and according to the International System of Units. Other definitions include: megabyte = 1,048,576 bytes megabyte = 1,024,000 bytes each kilobyte is 1024 bytes. so: 1024 kilobytes * 100 = 102,400 bytes A megabyte is 1,000,000 bytes, One million bytes. A Gigabyte is 1,000,000,000 bytes, A thousand million bytes, or 1,000 Megabytes. bytes, megabytes and Gigabytes are the units for measuring the amout of data on a computer. 1024 megabytes are a gigabyte Yes, the scale is byte kilobyte = 210 bytes megabyte = 220 bytes gigabyte = 230 bytes terabyte = 240 bytes petabyte = 250 bytes MB is more, 1 MB = 1024 KBs Heres the list from Least to greatest, Bytes, Kilo-Bytes, Mega-Bytes, Giga-Bytes, Terra-Bytes * 1 byte = 8 bits * 1 kilobyte (K / Kb) = 2^10 bytes = 1,024 bytes * 1 megabyte (M / MB) = 2^20 bytes = 1,048,576 bytes * 1 gigabyte (G / GB) = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes * 1 terabyte (T / TB) = 2^40 bytes = 1,099,511,627,776 bytes * 1 petabyte (P / PB) = 2^50 bytes = 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes * 1 exabyte (E / EB) = 2^60 bytes = 1,152,921,504,606,846,976 bytes taken from beesky.com 1000 terabytes is a petabyte.There are competing scales, increased by 1000 or 1024 (binary, 210). A terabyte is a trillion (short scale) bytes, 1012 bytes, or 1000 gigabytes, and the four larger official prefixes are:Petabyte = 1015 bytesExabyte = 1018 bytesZettabyte = 1021 bytesYottabyte = 1024 bytesFor values based on 1024 rather than 1000:Tebibyte = 240 bytes = 1024 gibibytes (giga-binary-bytes)Pebibyte = 250 bytesExbibyte = 260 bytesZebibyte = 270 bytesYobibyte = 280 bytes ###### Computer TerminologyComputer NetworkingCable InternetSoftware and Applications (non-game)ComputersComputer MemoryJobs & EducationComputer HardwareUnits of MeasureSynonyms and Antonyms Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
