(Decimal Unit)

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

kbit = KiB x (8x1024) / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 8x1024, 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 Kibibyte (KiB) to Kilobit (kbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kilobit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / 1000


Kilobit = Kibibyte x 8192 / 1000


Kilobit = Kibibyte x 8.192

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 2 KiB to kbit, will be processed as below.

  1. = 2 x (8x1024) / 1000
  2. = 2 x 8192 / 1000
  3. = 2 x 8.192
  4. = 16.384
  5. i.e. 2 KiB is equal to 16.384 kbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a 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 : 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.
