Question

Flash drives these days seem very small to those of us who were around at the beginning of the personal computer revolution. The hand shown in the picture below is holding a drive that can store 32 gigabytes (32 x 10^9 bytes). A. Estimate how big a byte is; that is, how much physical volume in the drive has to be devoted to storing the information in 1 Byte? Be sure to clearly state your assumptions and how you came to the numbers you estimated, since grading on this problem will be mostly based on your reasoning, not on your answer. B. Compare the volume you found in part A with the volume of a mammalian cell. Which has a greater information density?
