# What do you call a unit of info 8 bits long?

It could be called a byte, a character, a short integer, etc.

### Smallest unit of information in a computer?

A bit, which can hold two values. 1 bit is the smallest unit of info in a computer 4 bits = 1 byte 2 bytes = 1 word a "byte" can be all sorts of things: It usually is the smallest addressable unit in a computer. 8 bit bytes are the most common nowadays, but here are, or have been, computers with bytes of 4 bits, 8 bits, 9 bits, 13 bits, 16 bits and…

### What determines whether a microprocessor is considered an 8-bit a 16-bit or a 32-bit microprocessor?

The word size (8 bits,16 bits, or 32 bits) of a microprocessor is the size of the data path in the execution unit. Typically, this is the size of the accumulator. Note: This is the execution unit size, not the bus interface unit size. An example where this matters is the 8088, which is a 16 bit computer running on an 8 bit bus. The 8085 is 8 bits. The 8086/8088 is 16 bits. The…

### Which is the smallest addressable unit of memory?

Short answer: The byte. Long answer: This can differ from one computer to another, but on most computers today, the smallest addressable unit of memory is a byte, or a group of eight bits. There are special purpose computers where the smallest addressable piece of memory might be 16 bits. Other times, there are restrictions on the computer such that it can only fetch one bit at a time from memory. These cases are rare…

### What are the four type of centaral proces unit?

Do you mean Central Processing Unit(CPU) as in present in Laptop, PCs, Tablets, Cell Phones etc. I think there are many criterion to differentiate types of CPUs, on the basis of bits (32 bits or 64 bits), on the basis of cores (single core, dual-core, or multiple cores) and others (company make, computing model).

### The smallest of information in a computer each 1 or 0 that represents data?

Although binary digits (bits) are the smallest unit of information we can store in a computer, the smallest addressable unit is a byte, which is at least 8 bits in length. In order to access information at the bit level we must use bitwise logic, which is many times slower to access than the bytes that actually contain those bits.

### How many bits in 1 .mhz?

'hz' refers to a frequency, not a unit of storage, while the word 'bits' refers to a fraction of a unit of computer storage. Therefore, this question has no logical answer. Further, the use of a lower case 'm' may denote a unit of one millionth of a unit (as in 'micro' terms), while an upper-case 'M' may specify one million units (as in 'mega' terms). This asks the question, then, 'What was the questioner…

### What is the minimum memory unit to have an address?

byte - a sequence of 8 bits (enough to represent one character of alphanumeric data) processed as a single unit of information sector - the minimum track length that can be assigned to store information; unless otherwise specified a sector of data consists of 512 bytes block - (computer science) a sector or group of sectors that function as the smallest data unit permitted; "since blocks are often defined as a single sector, the terms…

### Which is the smallest unit of a data in a computer?

The smallest unit of data is called a "bit". It is an electrical that that has two states that are interpreted as either a zero or a one value. When you have two bits, each bit can represent either a 0 or a 1 and resulting in 4 possible values. Both can be zero, both can be one and one of them can be zero with the other being a one, or vice versa (00…

### How many bits in 4 octects?

An octet is a unit of digital information in computing that consists of eight bits. The term is often used when the term byte might be ambiguous, because there is actually no standard for the size of the byte (although octet and byte are often used interchangeably). Since an octet has 8 bits, 4 octets would have 32 bits (4x8=32).

### How much is 1 KB?

One Kilobyte is 1,024 Bytes or 8,192 Bits. A byte is a sequence of 8 bits...enogh to represent one character of alphanumeric data...processed as a single unit of information. A bit is a unit of measurement of information (from binary+digit) the amount of information in a system having two equally probable states.
