## kbps to KiBps Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Kilobit and Kibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobit is a decimal standard unit where as Kibibyte is binary. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. There are 8.192 Kilobits in one Kibibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobits Per Second to Kibibytes Per Second is represented as follows :

KiBps = kbps x 1000 / (8x1024)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobit is Decimal where as the target unit Kibibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1000, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 8x1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobits Per Second (kbps) to Kibibytes Per Second (KiBps). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Kibibytes Per Second = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / (8x1024)

STEP 1

Kibibytes Per Second = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / 8192

STEP 2

Kibibytes Per Second = Kilobits Per Second x 0.1220703125

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

1. = 10 x 1000 / (8x1024)
2. = 10 x 1000 / 8192
3. = 10 x 0.1220703125
4. = 1.220703125
5. i.e. 10 kbps is equal to 1.220703125 KiBps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal 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.

#### Definition : Kibibyte

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.

### Python Code for kbps to KiBps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kilobits Per Second to Kibibytes Per Second in Python.

kilobitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Kilobits Per Second: "))
kibibytesPerSecond = kilobitsPerSecond * 1000 / (8*1024)
print("{} Kilobits Per Second = {} Kibibytes Per Second".format(kilobitsPerSecond,kibibytesPerSecond))

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