# Text to Binary Converter

Use this text to binary converter tool to convert ASCII/Unicode text to binary codes instantly. This tool is straightforward and simple to use.

## About Text to Binary Converter

This Text to Binary Converter tool is an online utility that can be used by users or developers to convert any text into a binary code without complications quickly.

This text to binary converter tool is highly useful for developers, especially those preparing for competitive programming because computers only understand binary numbers. Therefore, understanding problems and communicating logic can be enhanced by using binary numbers effectively.

## What are Binary Numbers?

Binary numbers are a numerical representation in the base-2 numeral system, also known as the binary numeral system. This system uses only two symbols, usually "0" and "1", to represent natural numbers. Each digit in a binary number is called a bit, representing an increasing power of 2, starting from 2^0 for the rightmost bit.

## Converting Text to Binary

Let's take an example to understand this better. Suppose we have the text "Hello". If we want to find the binary representation of this text, we convert each character into its corresponding binary ASCII representation. The binary numbers will be:

```'H' -> 01001000
'e' -> 01100101
'l' -> 01101100
'l' -> 01101100
'o' -> 01101111
```

So, the binary representation of "Hello" is 01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111.
