Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Megabyte (MB) to Bit (b) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Bit = MB x (8x10002)

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Megabyte (MB) to Bit (b). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Bits = Megabytes x (8x10002)


Bits = Megabytes x (8x1000x1000)


Bits = Megabytes x 8000000


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Megabyte (MB) to Bit (b) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 x (8x10002)
  2. = 1 x (8x1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8000000
  4. = 8,000,000
  5. i.e. 1 MB is equal to 8,000,000 Bit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Megabytes to Bits using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

Unit Definitions

What is Megabyte ?

A Megabyte (MB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
