Kibit to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibit and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibit is a binary standard unit where as Kilobyte is decimal. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 7.8125 Kibibits in one Kilobyte. - view comparison between both units

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

Use the below formula to convert from Kibibit to Kilobyte.

kB = Kibit x 1024 / (8x1000)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibit is Binary where as the target unit Kilobyte 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 8x1000 .

Follow below steps to convert from Kibibit (Kibit) to Kilobyte (kB).

  1. STEP 1 → Kilobyte = Kibibit x 1024 / (8x1000)
  2. STEP 2 → Kilobyte = Kibibit x 1024 / 8000
  3. STEP 3 → Kilobyte = Kibibit x 0.128

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 Kibit to kB, will look like below.

  1. = 10 x 1024 / (8x1000)
  2. = 10 x 1024 / 8000
  3. = 10 x 0.128
  4. = 1.28
  5. i.e. 10 Kibit is equal to 1.28 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

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 : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
