Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB) Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB) Conversion Image

kbit to KiB Calculator Tool allows you to easily convert from Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB). This converter uses the below formula and steps to perform the conversion.

The formula of converting the Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB) is represented as follows :

diamond KiB = kbit x 1000 ÷ (8x1024)
Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kibibytes = Kilobits x 1000 ÷ (8x1024)


Kibibytes = Kilobits x 1000 ÷ 8192


Kibibytes = Kilobits x 0.1220703125


If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 12 Kilobit (kbit) to Kibibyte (KiB) will be processed as below.

  1. = 12 x 1000 ÷ (8x1024)
  2. = 12 x 1000 ÷ 8192
  3. = 12 x 0.1220703125
  4. = 1.46484375
  5. i.e. 12 kbit is equal to 1.46484375 KiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions


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.

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.
