The formula of converting the Kilobyte to Byte is represented as follows :

Bytes = kB x 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Byte (B). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

1. FORMULA → Byte = Kilobyte x 1000

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 256 kB to Bytes, will be processed as below.

1. = 256 x 1000
2. = 256000
3. i.e. 256 kB is equal to 256,000 Bytes.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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 : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.
