## b to kB Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

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

kB = Bit / (8x1000)

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

FORMULA

Kilobyte = Bit / (8x1000)

STEP 1

Kilobyte = Bit / 8000

STEP 2

Kilobyte = Bit x (1 / 8000)

STEP 3

Kilobyte = Bit x 0.000125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 256 Bit to kB will be processed as below.

1. = 256 / (8x1000)
2. = 256 / 8000
3. = 256 x (1 / 8000)
4. = 256 x 0.000125
5. = 0.032
6. i.e. 256 Bit is equal to 0.032 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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 decimal 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.
