Units of Memory Measurement in Computer/Data Storage Measurement in Computer

Units of Memory Measurement in Computer (Data Storage measurement in computer) are Binary digit, Byte, Kilobyte, Megabyte, Gigabyte, Terabyte, etc. The smallest and most commonly measured units of data storage capacity in computers and other discs are the bit (short for binary digit). The binary value of a bit is equal to either 0 or 1. A group of four bits or half-byte is equivalent to one nibble. Similarly, a group of eight bits are equivalent to one Byte. Generally,  computers manipulate bits in groups of a fixed size, called words. The list of units of memory measurement chart is given below the video tutorial.

Units of Memory Measurement/Data Storage Measurement in Computer

  • 1 Bit               =         0 or 1
  • 8 Bits             =         1 Byte 
  • 4 Bits or 1/2 Byte = 1 Nibble
  • 1024 Bytes   =         1 KB
  • 1024 KBs       =         1 MB
  • 1024 MBs      =         1 GB
  • 1024 GBs       =         1 TB
  • 1024 TBs       =         1 PB
  • 1024 PBs       =         1 EB
  • 1024 EBs       =         1 ZB
  • 1024 ZBs       =         1 YB.

Most frequent questions and answers

Currently the largest memory measurement in computer is Yottabyte . But, we have two proposed names for the next levels, namely Hellabyte or Brontobyte (Hellabyte or Brontobyte = 1,024 Yottabytes). So we’re not there yet.

The smallest and most commonly measured units of data storage capacity in computers and other discs are the bit (short for binary digit). The binary value of a bit is equal to either 0 or 1. A group of four bits or half-byte is equivalent to one nibble. Similarly, a group of eight bits are equivalent to one Byte

Bit stands for Binary digit. It is the smallest  memory measurement unit in computer and some other discs. It stores just 0 or 1.

A group of four bits or half  byte is called a nibble.

Crumb is rarely measured memory unit in computer. A pair of two bits is called a crumb.

A group of 8 bits are called byte. And it is the second smallest memory measurement unit in computer.
