## kbit to Kibit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit and Kibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobit is a decimal standard unit where as Kibibit is binary. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. There are 1.024 Kilobits in one Kibibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobit to Kibibit is represented as follows :

Kibit = kbit x 1000 / 1024

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobit is Decimal where as the target unit Kibibit 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 1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibit (Kibit).

1. STEP 1 → Kibibit = Kilobit x 1000 / 1024
2. STEP 2 → Kibibit = Kilobit x 0.9765625

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 kbit to Kibit, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 1000 / 1024
2. = 10 x 0.9765625
3. = 9.765625
4. i.e. 10 kbit is equal to 9.765625 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a 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 : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and 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.
