## Kibit to Mbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibit and Megabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibit is a binary standard unit where as Megabit is decimal. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 976.5625 Kibibits in one Megabit.

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)
Megabit (Mbit)
Equal to 1000^2 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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

Mbit = Kibit x 1024 / 10002

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibit is Binary where as the target unit Megabit 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 1000^2 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kibibit (Kibit) to Megabit (Mbit).

1. STEP 1 → Megabit = Kibibit x 1024 / 10002
2. STEP 2 → Megabit = Kibibit x 1024 / (1000x1000)
3. STEP 3 → Megabit = Kibibit x 1024 / 1000000
4. STEP 4 → Megabit = Kibibit x 0.001024

If we apply the above steps, conversion from 5000 Kibit to Mbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 5000 x 1024 / 10002
2. = 5000 x 1024 / (1000x1000)
3. = 5000 x 1024 / 1000000
4. = 5000 x 0.001024
5. = 5.12
6. i.e. 5,000 Kibit is equal to 5.12 Mbit.

(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 : Megabit

A Megabit (Mb or Mbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bits and 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 mebibit (Mibit) is used instead.

### Python Code for Kibit to Mbit Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kibibit to Megabit in Python.

kibibit = int(input("Enter Kibibit: "))
megabit = kibibit * 1024 / (1000*1000)
print("{} Kibibit = {} Megabit".format(kibibit,megabit))

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