thanks for the wonderful explanation, I would then like to understand the difference between the ls -l and du output because both of them return the same numbers?

@SirCharlo Yes, it was the block size that I was looking for and I found that using the tune2fs command, but what i am wondering is since the block size is 4096 bytes, files which are smaller than 4096 bytes will occupy 4096 bytes of space on the hard disk, but what about file sizes which are greater than this?
