kbit to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 8 Kilobits in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units

  x 8  

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

kB = kbit / 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobit (kbit) to Kilobyte (kB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kilobyte = Kilobit / 8


Kilobyte = Kilobit x (1 / 8)


Kilobyte = Kilobit x 0.125

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

  1. = 10 / 8
  2. = 10 x (1 / 8)
  3. = 10 x 0.125
  4. = 1.25
  5. i.e. 10 kbit is equal to 1.25 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Conversion Units

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 : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a 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.
