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 kilobyte?

As you might have guessed, a kilobyte is commonly defined as consisting of 1,000 bytes. We should point out that its actual value is 1,024 bytes (or 2^10 bytes). Still, most say that this value is very similar to 10^3. It is for this reason that the International System of Units (SI) generally equates the kilobyte with 1,000 bytes. This also helps to somewhat simplify multiplication factors when dealing with such massive numbers. To put this another way, one kilobyte is 10 x 10 x 10 bytes. Although this might seem like a large figure, let's recall that most operating systems contain gigabytes of data capacity!
