How many gigabytes are there in 1 bit?
There are 1.25E-10 gigabytes in 1 bit. To convert from bits to gigabytes, divide your figure by 8000000000 .
How many bits are there in 1 gigabyte?
There are 8000000000 bits in 1 gigabyte. To convert from gigabytes to bits, multiply your figure by 8000000000 .
What is a bit?
You might not be aware that the term "bit" is actually a shorter version of the phrase binary digit. A bit is the simplest unit of data storage and its value can represent a 0 or a 1 at any give time. Every other form of computing measurement is based off of the humble (and yet very important) bit.
What is a gigabyte?
A gigabyte is the equivalent of 1,000,000,000 bytes. Still, many fields of computer science will refer to this number as 1,073,741,824 (1,024^3) bytes. This second figure will often be used when speaking about different sizes of RAM within an operating system. To make sense out of this large figure, let's use it in reference:
- 1 gigabyte is 1,000 megabytes.
- 1 gigabyte is 1,000,000 kilobytes.
