# Convert 648 bytes to bits

So you want to convert 648 bytes into bits? If you're in a rush and just need the answer, the calculator below is all you need. The answer is 5184 bits.

## How to convert bytes to bits

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 bytes is equal to 8 bits.

Once you know what 1 bytes is in bits, you can simply multiply 8 by the total bytes you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 648 bytes. So all we do is multiply 648 by 8:

648 x 8 = 5184

## What is the best conversion unit for 648 bytes?

As an added little bonus conversion for you, we can also calculate the best unit of measurement for 648 bytes.

What is the "best" unit of measurement? To keep it simple, let's say that the best unit of measure is the one that is the lowest possible without going below 1. The reason for this is that the lowest number generally makes it easier to understand the measurement.

For 648 bytes the best unit of measurement is kilobits, and the amount is 5.184 kbits.
