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

## How to Convert Megabits to Bits

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

The conversion factor for mbits to b is:

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 500 mbits to b by multiplying `1000000`

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

**So, the answer to the question "what is 500 megabits in bits?" is 500000000 b.**

## Megabits to Bits Conversion Table

Below is a sample conversion table for mbits to b:

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

0.01 | 10000 |

0.1 | 100000 |

1 | 1000000 |

2 | 2000000 |

3 | 3000000 |

5 | 5000000 |

10 | 10000000 |

20 | 20000000 |

50 | 50000000 |

100 | 100000000 |

1000 | 1000000000 |

## Best Conversion Unit for 500 mbits

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 mbits.

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 mbits is megabytes and the amount is 62.5 mbytes.**
