bit, nybble, byte, WORD, DWORD, QWORD

It depends on the computer architecture.

For 32bit,

bit = …1 bit…

nybble = 4 bits = 1/2 byte

byte = 8 bits = 2 nybbles

WORD = 2 bytes = 4 nybbles = 16 bits

DWORD = 2 WORDs = 4 bytes = 8 nybbles = 32 bits

QWORD = 2 DWORDs = 4 WORDs = ….. = 64 bits

 

On 64bit system, it will be double.
