Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My teacher gave me the following information and asked me to prove that 1 minute of music requires 10 MB of storage space in a CD.

Sampling Rate: 44.1 kHz

Bit Depth: 16 bits

No. Channels: 2

I am a bit confused. If the bit depth is 16, that means I have 4 bits. But I only get the correct answer when I use 16 bits. Should instead of Bit depth it say number of bits?

Thanks,

Peter G.
