Hi! You can imagine it as a cell, a box in the computer's memory. The presence of something in the box is 1, the absence is 0. Physically, this looks like the presence or absence of an electric charge in the cell. There is a charge in the cell - this is 1. no charge - 0 for binary encoding of information on cd or dvd discs, an alternation of black non-reflective sections for the laser and reflective ones is used.
