## Kibibits per Second (Kibps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The Kibps to kbps Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data rates from Kibibits per Second (Kibps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Kibibit) and target (Kilobit) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula for converting the Kibibits per Second (Kibps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kbps = Kibps x 1024 ÷ 1000

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kibibits per Second (Kibps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Kilobits per Second = Kibibits per Second x 1024 ÷ 1000

STEP 1

Kilobits per Second = Kibibits per Second x 1.024

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kibibits per Second (Kibps) to Kilobits per Second (kbps) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 1024 ÷ 1000
2. = 1 x 1.024
3. = 1.024
4. i.e. 1 Kibps is equal to 1.024 kbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

### Unit Definitions

#### What is 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.
