## bps to Kibps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit and Kibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Bit is one of the very basic digital unit where as Kibibit is a binary unit. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. There are 1,024 Bits in one Kibibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Bit (b)

(Basic Unit)
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)

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

Kibps = bps / 1024

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Bit to Kibibit calculation steps in a simplified manner.

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bits Per Second (bps) to Kibibits Per Second (Kibps).

1. STEP 1 → Kibibits Per Second = Bits Per Second / 1024
2. STEP 2 → Kibibits Per Second = Bits Per Second x (1 / 1024)
3. STEP 3 → Kibibits Per Second = Bits Per Second x 0.0009765625

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 bps to Kibps, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / 1024
2. = 10 x (1 / 1024)
3. = 10 x 0.0009765625
4. = 0.009765625
5. i.e. 10 bps is equal to 0.009765625 Kibps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Second to Kibibits 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 : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and it is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.

### Python Code for bps to Kibps Conversion

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

bitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Bits Per Second: "))
kibibitsPerSecond = bitsPerSecond / 1024
print("{} Bits Per Second = {} Kibibits Per Second".format(bitsPerSecond,kibibitsPerSecond))

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