In this article I will show you how to convert 5 megabytes into terabits. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 5 mbytes to tbits. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Megabytes to Terabits

A megabyte is smaller than a terabit. I know that a mbytes is smaller than a tbits because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 5 megabytes into terabits, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mbytes to tbits is:

1 mbytes = 8.0E-6 tbits

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 5 mbytes to tbits by multiplying `8.0E-6` by the number of megabytes we have, which is 5.

5 x 8.0E-6 = 4.0E-5 tbits

So, the answer to the question "what is 5 megabytes in terabits?" is 4.0E-5 tbits.
