Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Byte (B).

  1. STEP 1 → Byte = Kilobyte x 1000

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 kB to Bytes, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 1000
  2. = 10000
  3. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 10,000 Bytes.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobyte to Byte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.
