(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobytes Per Minute to Kibibits Per Hour is represented as follows :

Kibit/Hour = kB/Minute x (8x1000) / 1024 x 60

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 8x1000, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobytes Per Minute (kB/Minute) to Kibibits Per Hour (Kibit/Hour). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kibibits Per Hour = Kilobytes Per Minute x (8x1000) / 1024 x 60


Kibibits Per Hour = Kilobytes Per Minute x 8000 / 1024 x 60


Kibibits Per Hour = Kilobytes Per Minute x 7.8125 x 60

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

  1. = 10 x (8x1000) / 1024 x 60
  2. = 10 x 8000 / 1024 x 60
  3. = 10 x 7.8125 x 60
  4. = 4687.5
  5. i.e. 10 kB/Minute is equal to 4,687.5 Kibit/Hour.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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