In this article I will show you how to convert 500 bits into megabits. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 500 b to mbits. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Bits to Megabits

A bit is smaller than a megabit. I know that a b is smaller than a mbits 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 500 bits into megabits, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for b to mbits is:

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 500 b to mbits by multiplying `1.0E-6`

by the number of bits we have, which is 500.

**So, the answer to the question "what is 500 bits in megabits?" is 0.0005 mbits.**

## Bits to Megabits Conversion Table

Below is a sample conversion table for b to mbits:

Bits (b) | Megabits (mbits) |
---|---|

0.01 | 0 |

0.1 | 0 |

1 | 0 |

2 | 0 |

3 | 0 |

5 | 0 |

10 | 0 |

20 | 0 |

50 | 0 |

100 | 0 |

1000 | 0 |

## Best Conversion Unit for 500 b

Sometimes when you work with conversions from one unit to another, the numbers can get a little confusing. Especially when dealing with really large numbers.

I've also calculated what the best unit of measurement is for 500 b.

To determine which unit is best, I decided to define that as being the unit of measurement which is as low as possible, without going below 1. Smaller numbers are more easily understood and can make it easier for you to understand the measurement.

**The best unit of measurement I have found for 500 b is bytes and the amount is 62.5 B.**
