Memory Units


Units of memory are used to store and represent information. Some of the most often encountered memory units are as follows:

1) Bit: The computer memory units are organised in a binary format. When it comes to measuring data held in main memory and storage devices, a bit is the lowest memory unit that may be used. A bit can only have one binary value out of the range of 0 and 1.

2) Byte: A byte is the fundamental unit of measurement for information. It consists of 8 bits or is equivalent to 8 bits in length. As a result, a byte may represent either 2*8 or 256 data.

3) Kilobyte: A kilobyte is a unit of measurement that includes 1024 bytes.

4) Megabyte: A megabyte is made up of 1024 kilobytes of data.

5) Gigabyte: A gigabyte is equal to 1024 megabytes in size.

6) Terabyte: A terabyte is equal to 1024 gigabytes in size.
