Kilobyte (kB) to Mebibyte (MiB) Conversion Formula and Steps

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Kilobyte
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Mebibyte
Equal to 1024^2 bytes
(Binary Unit)


The formula of converting the Kilobyte (kB) to Mebibyte (MiB) is represented as follows :

MiB = kB x 1000 ÷ 10242

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobyte (kB) to Mebibyte (MiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Mebibytes = Kilobytes x 1000 ÷ 10242

STEP 1

Mebibytes = Kilobytes x 1000 ÷ (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Mebibytes = Kilobytes x 1000 ÷ 1048576

STEP 3

Mebibytes = Kilobytes x 0.00095367431640625

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 8 Kilobyte (kB) to Mebibyte (MiB) will be processed as below.

  1. = 8 x 1000 ÷ 10242
  2. = 8 x 1000 ÷ (1024x1024)
  3. = 8 x 1000 ÷ 1048576
  4. = 8 x 0.00095367431640625
  5. = 0.00762939453125
  6. i.e. 8 kB is equal to 0.00762939453125 MiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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