Computer data is expressed as bytes, kilobytes, megabytes as it is in the metric system, but 1 kilobyte is 1024 bytes not 1000 bytes. Data storage units are: bit (b), byte (B), kilobyte (KB), megabyte (MB), gigabyte (GB), terabyte (TB), petabyte (PB), exabyte (EB), zettabyte (ZB) and yottabyte (YB).
Keeping this in view, what is the biggest unit of data?
Data Storage Units Chart: From Smallest to Largest
|Unit ||Shortened ||Capacity |
|Megabyte ||MB ||1024 kilobytes |
|Gigabyte ||GB ||1024 megabytes |
|Terabyte ||TB ||1024 gigabytes |
|Petabyte ||PB ||1024 terabytes |
Likewise, what are units of memory?
Memory unit is the amount of data that can be stored in the storage unit. This storage capacity is expressed in terms of Bytes. The following table explains the main memory storage units − S.No.
What is the smallest unit of information?
The smallest unit of data in a computer is called Bit (Binary Digit). A bit has a single binary value, either 0 or 1. In most computer systems, there are eight bits in a byte.
Which is bigger MB or KB or GB?
KB, MB, GB - A kilobyte (KB) is 1,024 bytes. A megabyte (MB) is 1,024 kilobytes. A gigabyte (GB) is 1,024 megabytes. A terabyte (TB) is 1,024 gigabytes.
