KiB to MB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Megabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Megabyte is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 976.5625 Kibibytes in one Megabyte.

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Megabyte (MB)
Equal to 1000^2 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

Use the below formula to convert from Kibibyte to Megabyte.

MB = KiB x 1024 / 10002

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte is Binary where as the target unit Megabyte 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 1000^2 .

Follow below steps to convert from Kibibyte (KiB) to Megabyte (MB).

  1. STEP 1 → Megabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / 10002
  2. STEP 2 → Megabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / (1000x1000)
  3. STEP 3 → Megabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / 1000000
  4. STEP 4 → Megabyte = Kibibyte x 0.001024

Detailed conversion steps from 500 KiB to MB, will look like below.

  1. = 500 x 1024 / 10002
  2. = 500 x 1024 / (1000x1000)
  3. = 500 x 1024 / 1000000
  4. = 500 x 0.001024
  5. = 0.512
  6. i.e. 500 KiB is equal to 0.512 MB.

(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 : Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 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 mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
