Advanced Description

This is is an experimental feature. Please report any issues.

A bit is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It represents a binary digit, which can be either a 0 or a 1. The term 'bit' is derived from the words 'binary digit'.

Bits are used to store and transmit data in computers and other digital devices. They form the foundation of all digital information processing and storage systems. Multiple bits can be combined to represent more complex information, such as characters, numbers, images, and videos.

In computer programming, bits are often grouped together to form bytes, which consist of 8 bits. Bytes are commonly used to measure file sizes and memory capacities. For example, a kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes.
