### You are currently converting Data Storage units from Byte to Bit

1 Byte (B)

=

8 Bit (b)

Byte : The byte is a basic unit of measurement for data storage that consists of eight bits. In most computer architectures it is a unit of memory addressing.

Bit : A bit is a smallest unit of measurement for computer data storage. It is a binary digit, and has the value of either 1 or 0 only. The bit is the abbreviation of binary digit. It has the symbol bit, or b. 8 bits are equal to 1 byte.

1 Byte = 8 Bit

### FAQ about Byte to Bit Conversion

1 byte (B) is equal to 8 bit (b).

1B = 8b

The data storage d in bit (b) is equal to the data storage d in byte (B) times 8, that conversion formula:

d(b) = d(B) × 8

One Byte is equal to 8 Bit:

1B = 1B × 8 = 8b

One Bit is equal to 0.125 Byte:

1b = 1b × 0.125 = 0.125B

d(b) = 5(B) × 8 = 40b
