Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kBps = kbps ÷ 8

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Kilobytes per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ 8

STEP 1

Kilobytes per Second = Kilobits per Second x (1 ÷ 8)

STEP 2

Kilobytes per Second = Kilobits per Second x 0.125

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Kilobytes per Second (kBps) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 ÷ 8
  2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8)
  3. = 1 x 0.125
  4. = 0.125
  5. i.e. 1 kbps is equal to 0.125 kBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Kilobits per Second to Kilobytes per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

Unit Definitions

What is 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.

What is Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 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 kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
