This is a bit confusting. From
to express quantities of digital information using orders of magnitude in excess of 1024, has been adopted.
Thus, four new prefixes have been introduced:
ronna pour 1027
ronto pour 10-27
quetta pour 1030
quecto pour 10-30
What does the reference to 1024 mean? Does it mean power of ten prefixes (negative powers)? The what relevance has 1024? If it's binary units, negative powers are nonsense.
Because the SI prefixes strictly represent powers of 10, they should not be used to represent powers of 2. Thus, one kilobit, or 1 kb a it, is 1000 bit and not 210 bit = 1024 bit. To alleviate this ambiguity, prefixes for binary multiples have been adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for use in information technology.
You can find the binary prefixes in:
There is not yet a word to be found about the above prefixes.
