Byte (B) to Megabit (Mbit) Conversion Formula and Steps

Byte (B) to Megabit (Mbit) Conversion Image

Byte to Mbit Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Byte (B) to Megabit (Mbit). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Byte (B) to Megabit (Mbit) is represented as follows :

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Mbit = Byte x 8 ÷ 10002
Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)
Equal to 1000^2 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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


Megabits = Bytes x 8 ÷ 10002


Megabits = Bytes x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)


Megabits = Bytes x 8 ÷ 1000000


Megabits = Bytes x 0.000008


Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Byte (B) to Megabit (Mbit) will be processed as below.

  1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 10002
  2. = 1 x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000000
  4. = 1 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.000008
  6. i.e. 1 Byte is equal to 0.000008 Mbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions
