The formula of converting the Bits Per Minute to Kilobits Per Second is represented as follows :

kbps = Bit/Minute / 1000 / 60

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bits Per Minute (b/Minute) to Kilobits Per Second (kbps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Minute / 1000 / 60


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Minute x (1 / 1000) / 60


Kilobits Per Second = Bits Per Minute x 0.001 / 60

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Bit/Minute to kbps, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 / 1000 / 60
  2. = 10 x (1 / 1000) / 60
  3. = 10 x 0.001 / 60
  4. = 0.0001666666666666666666666666666666666666
  5. i.e. 10 Bit/Minute is equal to 0.0001666666666666666666666666666666666666 kbps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Minute to Kilobits Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.

Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

Python Code for Bit/Minute to kbps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bits Per Minute to Kilobits Per Second in Python.

bitsPerMinute = int(input("Enter Bits Per Minute: "))
kilobitsPerSecond = bitsPerMinute / 1000 / 60
print("{} Bits Per Minute = {} Kilobits Per Second".format(bitsPerMinute,kilobitsPerSecond))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bits Per Minute as an input. The value of Kilobits Per Second is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
