Using the following context as an example for the calculations:

Data bus connecting the processor to a memory 32 bits, considering a memory with capacity of 16kB.


How many bits does a data bus need to have?

Unless the bus is multiplexed, every data bit is conveyed by a distinct data line, hence $32$.

This does not account for the address bus.
