## B to kbit Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

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 Byte to Kilobit is represented as follows :

kbit = Byte x 8 / 1000

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

FORMULA

Kilobit = Byte x 8 / 1000

STEP 1

Kilobit = Byte x 0.008

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 8 Byte to kbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 8 x 8 / 1000
2. = 8 x 0.008
3. = 0.064
4. i.e. 8 Byte is equal to 0.064 kbit.

(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 : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal 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.

### Excel Formula to convert from Byte to kbit

### Python Code for Byte to kbit Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Byte to Kilobit in Python.

byte = int(input("Enter Byte: "))
kilobit = byte * 8 / 1000
print("{} Byte = {} Kilobit".format(byte,kilobit))

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