## kB/Hour to Mibps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Mebibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobyte is a decimal standard unit where as Mebibit is binary. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Mebibit is equal to 1024^2 bits. There are 131.072 Kilobytes in one Mebibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Mebibit (Mibit)
Equal to 1024^2 bits
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobytes Per Hour to Mebibits Per Second is represented as follows :

Mibps = kB/Hour x (8x1000) / 10242 / ( 60 x 60 )

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobyte is Decimal where as the target unit Mebibit is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 8x1000, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^2 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobytes Per Hour (kB/Hour) to Mebibits Per Second (Mibps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Mebibits Per Second = Kilobytes Per Hour x (8x1000) / 10242 / ( 60 x 60 )

STEP 1

Mebibits Per Second = Kilobytes Per Hour x (8x1000) / (1024x1024) / ( 60 x 60 )

STEP 2

Mebibits Per Second = Kilobytes Per Hour x 8000 / 1048576 / ( 60 x 60 )

STEP 3

Mebibits Per Second = Kilobytes Per Hour x 0.00762939453125 / ( 60 x 60 )

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

1. = 10 x (8x1000) / 10242 / ( 60 x 60 )
2. = 10 x (8x1000) / (1024x1024) / ( 60 x 60 )
3. = 10 x 8000 / 1048576 / ( 60 x 60 )
4. = 10 x 0.00762939453125 / ( 60 x 60 )
5. = 0.0000211927625868055555555555555555555555
6. i.e. 10 kB/Hour is equal to 0.0000211927625868055555555555555555555555 Mibps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobytes Per Hour to Mebibits Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### 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.

#### Definition : Mebibit

A Mebibit (Mib or Mibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 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 "megabit" (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.

### Python Code for kB/Hour to Mibps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kilobytes Per Hour to Mebibits Per Second in Python.

kilobytesPerHour = int(input("Enter Kilobytes Per Hour: "))
mebibitsPerSecond = kilobytesPerHour * (8*1000) / (1024*1024) / ( 60 * 60 )
print("{} Kilobytes Per Hour = {} Mebibits Per Second".format(kilobytesPerHour,mebibitsPerSecond))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Kilobytes Per Hour as an input. The value of Mebibits Per Second is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
