 +=====Bit=====
 +A single '​Bit'​ of information that can either be '​True',​ '​On',​ '​Set'​ (1) or '​False',​ '​Off',​ '​Clear'​ (0).\\ ​
 +The bit (a portmanteau of binary digit) is a basic unit of information used in computing and digital communications. A binary digit can have only one of two values, and may be physically represented with a two-state device. These state values are most commonly represented as either a 0 or 1. [[wp>​Bit|Bit]]

 In analysis of an electric power network a "​bus"​ is any node of the single-line diagram at which voltage, current, power flow, or other quantities are to be evaluated. These may or may not correspond with heavy electrical conductors at a substation. In analysis of an electric power network a "​bus"​ is any node of the single-line diagram at which voltage, current, power flow, or other quantities are to be evaluated.

 +=====Byte=====
 +The byte is a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits, representing a binary number. Historically,​ the byte was the number of bits used to encode a single character of text in a computer[1][2] and for this reason it is the smallest addressable unit of memory in many computer architectures.
