The formula of converting the Bit (b) to Kibibit (Kibit) is represented as follows :

Kibit = Bit ÷ 1024

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Bit (b) to Kibibit (Kibit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kibibits = Bits ÷ 1024


Kibibits = Bits x (1 ÷ 1024)


Kibibits = Bits x 0.0009765625

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 17 Bit (b) to Kibibit (Kibit) will be processed as below.

  1. = 17 ÷ 1024
  2. = 17 x (1 ÷ 1024)
  3. = 17 x 0.0009765625
  4. = 0.0166015625
  5. i.e. 17 Bit is equal to 0.0166015625 Kibit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions


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.

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a binary 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.
