## kB to Kibit Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Kilobyte and Kibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobyte is a decimal standard unit where as Kibibit is binary. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. There are 0.128 Kilobytes in one Kibibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)

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

Kibit = kB x (8x1000) / 1024

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 Kilobyte (kB) to Kibibit (Kibit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Kibibit = Kilobyte x (8x1000) / 1024

STEP 1

Kibibit = Kilobyte x 8000 / 1024

STEP 2

Kibibit = Kilobyte x 7.8125

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

1. = 10 x (8x1000) / 1024
2. = 10 x 8000 / 1024
3. = 10 x 7.8125
4. = 78.125
5. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 78.125 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : 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.

#### Definition : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and 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.
