Single bit error: The term single bit error means that only one bit of a given data
unit (such as byte character/data unit or packet) is changed from 1 to 0 or from 0 to 1.

Burst error: Means that 2 or more bits in the data unit have changed from 1 to 0
from 0 to 1.

SINGLE BIT ERROR is a very simple scheme that can be used to detect single or any other odd number (i.e., three, five, etc.) of errors in the output.
The term single bit error suggest that only one bit in the given data unit sush as byte is in error.this means that only one bit will change from 1 to 0 or 0 to 1..
In case of burst error,if two or more bits from a data unit such as bte change from 1 to 0 or from 0 to 1 then burst errors are said to have occured.the lenghth of burst is measured from the first corrupted bit to last corrupted bit
