## Kibit to kbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibit and Kilobit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibit is a binary standard unit where as Kilobit is decimal. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 0.9765625 Kibibits in one Kilobit. Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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

kbit = Kibit x 1024 / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibit is Binary where as the target unit Kilobit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1024, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

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

FORMULA

Kilobit = Kibibit x 1024 / 1000

STEP 1

Kilobit = Kibibit x 1.024

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 7 Kibit to kbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 7 x 1024 / 1000
2. = 7 x 1.024
3. = 7.168
4. i.e. 7 Kibit is equal to 7.168 kbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a 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.

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a 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.
