## KiB to Mbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Megabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Megabit is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 122.0703125 Kibibytes in one Megabit.

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Megabit (Mbit)
Equal to 1000^2 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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

Mbit = KiB x (8x1024) / 10002

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 8x1024, 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 Kibibyte (KiB) to Megabit (Mbit).

1. STEP 1 → Megabit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / 10002
2. STEP 2 → Megabit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / (1000x1000)
3. STEP 3 → Megabit = Kibibyte x 8192 / 1000000
4. STEP 4 → Megabit = Kibibyte x 0.008192

If we apply the above steps, conversion from 5 KiB to Mbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 5 x (8x1024) / 10002
2. = 5 x (8x1024) / (1000x1000)
3. = 5 x 8192 / 1000000
4. = 5 x 0.008192
5. = 0.04096
6. i.e. 5 KiB is equal to 0.04096 Mbit.

(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 : 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 KiB to Mbit Conversion

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

kibibyte = int(input("Enter Kibibyte: "))
megabit = kibibyte * (8*1024) / (1000*1000)
print("{} Kibibyte = {} Megabit".format(kibibyte,megabit))

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