## Kilobyte (kB) to Kibibit (Kibit) Conversion Formula and Steps

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

The formula of converting the Kilobyte (kB) to Kibibit (Kibit) is represented as follows :

Kibit = kB x (8x1000) ÷ 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

Kibibits = Kilobytes x (8x1000) ÷ 1024

STEP 1

Kibibits = Kilobytes x 8000 ÷ 1024

STEP 2

Kibibits = Kilobytes x 7.8125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 2 Kilobyte (kB) to Kibibit (Kibit) will be processed as below.

1. = 2 x (8x1000) ÷ 1024
2. = 2 x 8000 ÷ 1024
3. = 2 x 7.8125
4. = 15.625
5. i.e. 2 kB is equal to 15.625 Kibit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

#### 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.

#### 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.
