## kB to MiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Mebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobyte is a decimal standard unit where as Mebibyte is binary. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Mebibyte is equal to 1024^2 bytes. There are 1,048.576 Kilobytes in one Mebibyte.

(Decimal Unit)
Mebibyte (MiB)
Equal to 1024^2 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

MiB = kB x 1000 / 10242

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobyte is Decimal where as the target unit Mebibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1000, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^2 .

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

FORMULA

Mebibyte = Kilobyte x 1000 / 10242

STEP 1

Mebibyte = Kilobyte x 1000 / (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Mebibyte = Kilobyte x 1000 / 1048576

STEP 3

Mebibyte = Kilobyte x 0.00095367431640625

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 9 kB to MiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 9 x 1000 / 10242
2. = 9 x 1000 / (1024x1024)
3. = 9 x 1000 / 1048576
4. = 9 x 0.00095367431640625
5. = 0.00858306884765625
6. i.e. 9 kB is equal to 0.00858306884765625 MiB.

(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 : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabyte" (MB). 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.
