Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Byte to Bit calculation steps in a simplified manner.

÷ 8
Bit [b]
Byte [B]
x 8

The formula of converting the Byte to Bit is represented as follows :

Bits = Byte x 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Byte (B) to Bit (b). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

1. FORMULA → Bit = Byte x 8

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 2 Byte to Bits, will be processed as below.

1. = 2 x 8
2. = 16
3. i.e. 2 Byte is equal to 16 Bits.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

Definition : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.

Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
