B to kbit - 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

Byte (B)
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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

kbit = Byte x 8 / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Byte (B) to Kilobit (kbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kilobit = Byte x 8 / 1000


Kilobit = Byte x 0.008

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

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

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Byte to Kilobit using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.
