Bit (bit, b) is a unit in the category of Data (Binary). This unit is commonly used in the Computer unit system. Bit (bit, b) has a dimension of nil (data) where L is length, T is time, N is amount of substance, and I is electric current. It essentially the same as the corresponding standard SI unit .
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Data (Binary) include Byte (B), Gigabinarybit (gibibit) (Gib), Gigabinarybyte (gibibyte) (GiB), Gigabit (Gb), Gigabyte (GB), Kilobinarybit (kibibit) (Kib), Kilobinarybyte (kibibyte) (KiB), Kilobit (Kb), Kilobyte (KB), Megabinarybit (mebibit) (Mib), Megabinarybyte (mebibyte) (MiB), Megabit (Mb), Megabyte (MB), Terabinarybit (tebibit) (Tib), Terabinarybyte (tebibyte) (TiB), Terabit (Tb), and Terabyte (TB).
