1 GB Equals To How Many MB? & How Many Byte, KB, TB And PB

Hey, guys are you looking for how many How Many MB in 1 GB then you are right place. Because today in this article we are going to share 1 GB equal to how many MB? or How many MB is 1GB? or Is 1GB equal to 1024 MB or 1000 MB?

Bit: A bit is the smallest unit of data in a computer system. It has a single binary value is either 1 or 0.

Byte: Group of 8 binary digits equal to Byte.

  • 1 Byte is equal to 8 Bits. And 1 Kilobyte is equal to 1024 Bytes.
  • 1 Megabyte is equal to 1000 Kilobytes. And 1 Gigabyte is equal to 1000 Megabytes.

A Megabyte is a unit of computer storage equal to 1,048,576 bytes. But 1 Gigabyte equal to 1024 Megabytes.

Binary number system uses base 2 number is either 0 o1 1 to represent numerical values. So it is representing values using only 0s and 1s.

The decimal numeral system is a base 10 system It uses 0 to 9 digit to represent numerical values.

You can easily understand by below table.

  • 1 Bit = Binary Digit
  • 1 Byte = 8 Bits
  • 1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
  • 1 Megabyte = 1000 Kilobytes
  • 1 Gigabyte = 1000 Megabytes
  • 1 Terabyte = 1000 Gigabytes
  • 1 Petabyte = 1000 Terabytes
  • 1 Exabyte = 1000 Petabytes
  • 1 Zettabyte = 1000 Exabytes
  • 1 Yottabyte = 1000 Zettabyte
  • 1 Brontobyte = 1000 Yottabyte

One gigabyte has been defined as 1023*3 bytes or 1,073,741,824 bytes. But these numbers are commonly used for computer memory and file sizes.

In 1998 the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) introduced new symbols and prefixes for binary multiples. So now according to the new definitions, one gigabyte equals 1000*3 bytes and 1023*3 bytes.

According to hardware manufacturers,

1 GB = 1000 MB = 1000000 KB = 1000000000 Bytes

But in reality

1 GB = 1024 MB = 1048576 KB = 1073741824 Bytes.

  • Set of 2 ^ (3) bits are called 1 byte.
  • Set of 2^(10) bytes forms 1 Kibibyte (KiB).
  • 2^(10) Kibibytes forms 1 Mebibyte ( MiB).
  • 2^(10) or 1024 Mebibytes forms a Gibibyte (GiB).
