## B to Kibit Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Byte and Kibibit 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 Kibibit is a binary unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. There are 128 Bytes in one Kibibit.

Byte (B)
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Byte to Kibibit is represented as follows :

Kibit = Byte x 8 / 1024

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

FORMULA

Kibibit = Byte x 8 / 1024

STEP 1

Kibibit = Byte x 0.0078125

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

1. = 256 x 8 / 1024
2. = 256 x 0.0078125
3. = 2
4. i.e. 256 Byte is equal to 2 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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 : Kibibit

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.
