Chapter 4: Representation of data in computer systems OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Representation of data in computer systems Units Number Character Images Sound Instructions OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units Computers work with binary data Processors are made of millions of switches. These can be on or off to represent data. Binary data is two-state Yes or no True or false 0 or 1 All real-world data must be converted to binary before a computer can handle it. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units You can represent most facts as a set of 0s and 1s Can you buy me a present? 0=No, 1=Yes If you have two 0s and 1s you can say more: 00=No, 01=Yes, 10=if it's cheap, 11=if you get me something too With enough 0s and 1s you can say most things. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units The smallest unit of binary data is a BIT (BInary digiT) It has two states, 0 and 1. To do anything useful, you need lots of bits. Most computers group bits together to make it easier to store them. Usually memory locations hold 8 bits. The amount stored in one location is called a byte. This is sometimes called an octet.

Units Sometimes it is useful to address half a byte. Maybe you don't need a whole byte to store something. Half a byte is called a nibble (sometimes spelt nybble). For most serious work, you need much larger stores of data. As computers get more powerful and we use them more, we need to store more data. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units – Kilobyte Kilobyte (kB) – this is 1024 bytes – it is not 1000 bytes because computers work with binary numbers, so it is 2 10 which is the nearest power of two to These days, a kilobyte of data is not much, so we often use much bigger groups. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units – Megabyte Megabyte (MB) – this is 1024 kilobytes or 2 20 ( ) bytes. 1 MB is enough data for – a 1024 × 1024 pixel bitmap image with 256 colours – 1 minute of 128 kbit/s MP3 compressed music – 6 seconds of uncompressed CD audio – a typical book. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units – Gigabyte Gigabyte (GB) – this is 1024 megabytes or 2 30 bytes. 1 GB is enough data for – one hour of standard video – seven minutes of high-definition video – 114 minutes of uncompressed CD-quality audio A DVD-R can hold 4.7 GB A dual-layered Blu-ray ® disk can hold 50 GB. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
Units – Terabyte Terabyte (TB) – this is 1024 gigabytes or 2 40 bytes. Yahoo groups has over 40 TB of data. Wikipedia has over 6 TB of data. As time goes on, we will get used to even larger units of data. OCR Computing for GCSE © Hodder Education 2011
