KiBps to kBps Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Kibibyte and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Kilobyte is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.9765625 Kibibytes in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units

Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Kibibytes Per Second to Kilobytes Per Second is represented as follows :

kBps = KiBps x 1024 / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 1024, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kibibytes Per Second (KiBps) to Kilobytes Per Second (kBps). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kilobytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 1024 / 1000


Kilobytes Per Second = Kibibytes Per Second x 1.024

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 KiBps to kBps, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 1024 / 1000
  2. = 10 x 1.024
  3. = 10.24
  4. i.e. 10 KiBps is equal to 10.24 kBps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kibibytes Per Second to Kilobytes Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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 decimal 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.
