## Bps to kbps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Byte and Kilobit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Byte is one of the very basic digital unit where as Kilobit is a decimal unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 125 Bytes in one Kilobit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Byte (B)
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Bytes Per Second to Kilobits Per Second is represented as follows :

kbps = Bps x 8 / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bytes Per Second (Bps) to Kilobits Per Second (kbps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Kilobits Per Second = Bytes Per Second x 8 / 1000

STEP 1

Kilobits Per Second = Bytes Per Second x 0.008

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

1. = 10 x 8 / 1000
2. = 10 x 0.008
3. = 0.08
4. i.e. 10 Bps is equal to 0.08 kbps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bytes Per Second to Kilobits Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

### Python Code for Bps to kbps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bytes Per Second to Kilobits Per Second in Python.

bytesPerSecond = int(input("Enter Bytes Per Second: "))
kilobitsPerSecond = bytesPerSecond * 8 / 1000
print("{} Bytes Per Second = {} Kilobits Per Second".format(bytesPerSecond,kilobitsPerSecond))

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