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.


Kilobyte = Bit / (8x1000)


Kilobyte = Bit / 8000


Kilobyte = Bit x (1 / 8000)


Kilobyte = Bit x 0.000125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 500 Bit to kB, will be processed as below.

  1. = 500 / (8x1000)
  2. = 500 / 8000
  3. = 500 x (1 / 8000)
  4. = 500 x 0.000125
  5. = 0.0625
  6. i.e. 500 Bit is equal to 0.0625 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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.
