Use the below formula to convert from Kilobyte to Bit.

Bits = kB x (8x1000)

Follow below steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Bit (b).

  1. STEP 1 → Bit = Kilobyte x (8x1000)
  2. STEP 2 → Bit = Kilobyte x 8000

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 kB to Bits, will look like below.

  1. = 10 x (8x1000)
  2. = 10 x 8000
  3. = 80000
  4. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 80,000 Bits.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobyte to Bit 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 : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
