# How many megabytes are in one gigabyte

**How many megabytes are in one gigabyte?**

In computer system, one megabyte equals to 1024 kilobytes. In other words, there are 1,048,576 bytes in 1 megabyte according to the binary system which computers use. So one gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes in base 2. This also means that there are 1,024 megabytes in one gigabyte in binary system.

**How many bytes are in one gigabyte?**

Bytes are the basic unit of information in computer storage. And they are the smallest units of storage in computer technology. This means that a byte contains very small data. There are 8 bits (binary digits) in a byte. On the other hand, gigabytes and terabytes are mostly used in today computer technology. In computer system, there are 2^{10} megabytes in one gigabyte. And 1 gigabyte equals to 1,073,741,824 bytes or 2^{30} bytes in binary system.

**How many megabytes make one terabyte?**

Terabytes (or one trillion bytes) are commonly used for measuring the size of computer hardware, library data etc. One terabyte is 1000 times bigger than a Gigabyte and 1000 times smaller than a Petabyte. In computer system, there are 1,048,576 megabytes in a terabyte. This also means that 1 TB is equal to 2^{20} MB in base 2.

**How many kilobytes in a gigabyte?**

Gigabyte is one of the most commonly used units for measuring the storage capacity of a computer hard drive. And there are 1,073,741,824 bytes in 1 GB according to the binary system. We can also say that one gigabyte is equivalent to 1,024 MB or 1,048,576 kilobytes in base 2.
