## KiB to MiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Mebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are binary units. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Mebibyte is equal to 1024^2 bytes. There are 1,024 Kibibytes in one Mebibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

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

MiB = KiB / 1024

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kibibyte (KiB) to Mebibyte (MiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Mebibyte = Kibibyte / 1024

STEP 1

Mebibyte = Kibibyte x (1 / 1024)

STEP 2

Mebibyte = Kibibyte x 0.0009765625

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

1. = 10 / 1024
2. = 10 x (1 / 1024)
3. = 10 x 0.0009765625
4. = 0.009765625
5. i.e. 10 KiB is equal to 0.009765625 MiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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 : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabyte" (MB). 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.
