kbit to MiB Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Kilobit and Mebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobit is a decimal standard unit where as Mebibyte is binary. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Mebibyte is equal to 1024^2 bytes. There are 8,388.608 Kilobits in one Mebibyte. - view the difference between both units

(Binary Unit)

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

MiB = kbit x 1000 / (8x10242)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobit is Decimal where as the target unit Mebibyte 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 8x1024^2 .

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


Mebibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / (8x10242)


Mebibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / (8x1024x1024)


Mebibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / 8388608


Mebibyte = Kilobit x 0.00011920928955078125

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

  1. = 10 x 1000 / (8x10242)
  2. = 10 x 1000 / (8x1024x1024)
  3. = 10 x 1000 / 8388608
  4. = 10 x 0.00011920928955078125
  5. = 0.0011920928955078125
  6. i.e. 10 kbit is equal to 0.0011920928955078125 MiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobit to Mebibyte 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 : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabyte" (MB). 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.
