## b to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit and Kilobyte 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 Kilobyte is a decimal unit. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 8,000 Bits in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

The formula of converting the Bit to Kilobyte is represented as follows :

kB = Bit / (8x1000)

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bit (b) to Kilobyte (kB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Kilobyte = Bit / (8x1000)

STEP 1

Kilobyte = Bit / 8000

STEP 2

Kilobyte = Bit x (1 / 8000)

STEP 3

Kilobyte = Bit x 0.000125

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

1. = 10 / (8x1000)
2. = 10 / 8000
3. = 10 x (1 / 8000)
4. = 10 x 0.000125
5. = 0.00125
6. i.e. 10 Bit is equal to 0.00125 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bit to Kilobyte 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 : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
