Enter the number of bits into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Bit Resolution. 

Bit Resolution Formula

BS = 2^n


  • BS is the Bit Resolution (steps)
  • n is the number of bits

To calculate Bit Resolution, raise 2 to the power of the number of bits.

How to Calculate Bit Resolution?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Bit Resolution.

  • First, determine the number of bits. 
  • Next, gather the formula from above = BS = 2^n.
  • Finally, calculate the Bit Resolution.
  • After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
