The formula of converting the Kibibyte (KiB) to Bit (b) is represented as follows :

Bit = KiB x (8x1024)

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kibibyte (KiB) to Bit (b). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Bits = Kibibytes x (8x1024)


Bits = Kibibytes x 8192

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 5 Kibibyte (KiB) to Bit (b) will be processed as below.

  1. = 5 x (8x1024)
  2. = 5 x 8192
  3. = 40,960
  4. i.e. 5 KiB is equal to 40,960 Bit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions


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.
