Hello. Great resource; however, noted that on ‘Calculating Units of Mass’ page that states grams to milligrams should be multiplied by 10. Should read ‘multiplied by 1000’.

Hi Adrian. Thanks for picking this up, we’re onto it!

I am confused, one kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes or 1000 bytes?
I see different opinions about this definition, for example


I understand there are different definitions, my question is which one of the two is commonly used.

Hi Andrea, on kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes most commonly.

1024 is 2 to the 10th power – it is a binary number used in computing 0’s & 1’s

I think you have made an error with the volume, it should actually be titled capacity (how much something holds). Volume is the amount f space an object occupies.
