The smallest unit of storage in a computer
The smallest unit of data storage in a computer is called Bit (Binary Digit). Half a byte (four bits) is called a Nibble.
1 bit (binary digit) = the value of 0 or 1
8 bits = 1 byte
1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte
1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte
1024 terabytes = 1 petabyte
Hence, Computer storage units smallest to largest i.e, in ascending order is
1 bit < 1 byte < 1 KB < 1 MB < 1 GB < 1TB < 1 PB.
