## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Versus Kibibytes per Second (KiBps) - Comparison

Kilobytes per Second and Kibibytes per Second are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate.

Kilobytes per Second is a "decimal" unit where as Kibibytes per Second is a "binary" unit. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. There are 1.024 Kilobyte in one Kibibyte. Find more details on below table.

Kilobytes per Second (kBps) Kibibytes per Second (KiBps)
Kilobytes per Second (kBps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Kilobytes that can be transferred in one Second. Kibibytes per Second (KiBps) is a unit of measurement for data transfer bandwidth. It measures the number of Kibibytes that can be transferred in one Second.

## Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Kibibytes per Second (KiBps) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The kBps to KiBps Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data rates from Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Kibibytes per Second (KiBps). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Kilobyte) and target (Kibibyte) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula for converting the Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Kibibytes per Second (KiBps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA KiBps = kBps x 1000 ÷ 1024

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Kibibytes per Second (KiBps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Kibibytes per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 1000 ÷ 1024

STEP 1

Kibibytes per Second = Kilobytes per Second x 0.9765625

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobytes per Second (kBps) to Kibibytes per Second (KiBps) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 1000 ÷ 1024
2. = 1 x 0.9765625
3. = 0.9765625
4. i.e. 1 kBps is equal to 0.9765625 KiBps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Kilobytes per Second to Kibibytes per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal 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.

#### What is Kibibyte ?

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.
